48 McMahon Ave, Anglesea VIC

We strongly believe that if more photos of tyre swings in scraggy, tea-treed backyards were showcased as 'lifestyle' selling points in real estate listings, our world would be a much better place.

14a Mawhera Ave, Sandy Bay TAS

This staunch, late Mod residence in a premier Hobart suburb though capturing hearts immediately, could endear itself to the unconvinced by echoing the late 60/70s era in which it was conceived, in styling, rather than filling the space with florals, iron lacework and...

27 Araba St, Aranda ACT

Second helping of P&S goodness (well, we don't know for sure- but just look at it), and this time with added cork! Dig that timber, painted brick and flooring combo - just delicious. If you missed out yesterday, make it up today.

31 Perry Dve, Chapman ACT

A listing of pure Pettit and Sevitt perfection. No really, it could be the most intact and original P&S we've ever had (and we have had quite a few over the years). Set on a beautiful Canberra bush block with an awesome floor plan headed straight to our 'house...

10 Fernbank Tce, Stonyfell SA

Like a highly intelligent and spirited young woman told to dress 'normally' so as to 'blend in' the brilliance still shines through on first meeting. The masterful design of this lovely residence overrides any cream and pastel average and makes the heart jump. This...

16 Hilton St, Beaumaris VIC

A sublimely simple yet satisfying residence with sky-high potential for a glam-up, however (once again) this is on the chronically endangered list.

7 Avona Cres, Seaforth NSW

For the underwhelmed, the fatigued, the spiritless looking for a spark to kick the heart back into gear - clap your sore peepers on this. For any maths-brained seagull it's a french curve. For any real estate jackal it's views, land and millions in a sale. For us it's...

37 Dumbarton Cres, Menora WA

Finally WA shows itself and thankfully presents some clued-in owners. This is a beautifully done reno, not only keeps but celebrates a bunch of this sensational home's original features (dig that brickwork and metal flue fireplace) and floor plan (from the looks)...

107 Peel St West, West Launceston TAS

Though that pitched and tiled roof looks a little out of place, the rest is a atomic flavoured dream house. Surely there is some industrious Betty and John in northern Tassie ready to take this baby on? Oh and double points for the best house name this side of...

Heritage victory #2, The Thurlow House saga concludes

A month overdue, but still some great news, Harry Seidler's Thurlow House, a home transfer which caused a minor snafu in Modernist and heritage circles last year has with co-operation from the new owners and the Heritage Council of NSW, achieved state heritage...

Compulsory viewing from Aunty

It's finally here, after over a year of waiting and working ourselves into a pitched fever tomorrow, the 8 of November, brings to a head the culmination of so much hard work and lays bare a full dissemination of all that is good and evil in this world. We are speaking...

Heritage victory # 1

Time to relay some good, nay brilliant, news stories which have been floating around the traps in the past month or so. First up, a suburban Melbourne listing we posted early last year, with a depressing resignation that it was not long for the world. Well, it is...
