519 Fig Tree Pocket Rd, Fig Tree Pocket QLD

Hold on to your hats cats and kittens, Brisbane has just revealed one of it's best. Another slice of brilliance with a swinging Palm Springs/Atomic Ranch sophistication and in such pristine condition as to make us swoon over our morning coffee (first time for sale!)....

30 Astley St, Montmorency VIC

Monty's never gonna let you down with the likes of this. An absolute ripper. Straight and clean as they come*, in an Australian native palette of red/brown tones and opposing textures, dialling up the cosy. Oh, and big props also to the agents for espousing the...

18 Moore St, Colac VIC

A regular where MA listings are concerned, good ol' Colac does seem to punch above it's weight in gorgeous little homes, of predominantly original build and fittings. This one is a particularly neat-o residence, that cream brick straight and unblemished as anything...

6 Tusmore Ave, Leabrook SA

Like a vegan walking past a butcher shop window, a prime cut poster gleaming from the window, so too we steel ourselves, assume the higher road and clench our teeth at that first image of subdivided land. We could try to explain to ol' mates Oren and Matty boy that...

6 Chelmsford Ave, Mitcham SA

Yes this house is a brick and timber beamed beauty which has been kicking arse and taking 'likes' all over the local Mod social media, and yes it's in great nick just ripe for a new owner to make it shimmer even more, but what are we really loving here? Allocasuarina...

75 Station Rd, Gisborne VIC

Just outside Melbourne sits someone's dream home. Assuredly hybrid Australian in its sweeping garden and rolling vistas, it strikes a beautifully sculptural form from the exterior and warms the cockles of those sentimental for the more grounded, dare we say country...

‘Jones House’ 103 Wimborne Ave, Mount Eliza VIC

With a bone structure that belongs in the books of Ford Modelling Agency this unassuming, bucolic beauty has renovation potential dripping off every right angle and trickling down those glazed/masonry expanses. If this one was in our 'hood we'd be on it like white on...

212 Monbulk Rd, The Patch VIC

Though overrun with some well very presented MCM listings right now, we keep returning to this one, so up it goes. We're not sure if the cooling weather is attracting our eye to the sun-dappled, New England setting or perhaps the growing Twin Peaks anticipation is...

The Rumpus Room

Athleisurewear as once seen in rumpus rooms, patios and bars across the nation (The Sun newspaper, Sept. 29th 1983) Conjurer and ferryman to Australian suburbia of the 60s, 70s and 80s, Tim Ross has recently released a new book on the very subject and is now...

Three more triumphs!

Three seperate emails we've received in the last month, have filled our hearts with kind words and the good news that yet more homes, two in greater Hobart and one in the Blue Mountains, have fallen into the right hands. David and David (not related) have both swooped...

MA Holiday Rentals have arrived!

Attention - all you lovers of fine Modernist Mid-Century Australian architecture and goers on mini-breaks. Those of you who dream of sleeping under butterfly roofs, bathing in pink bathtubs, basking in the light and breathing in those timber ceilings of one-of-a-kind...
