60 Phillips St, Bracken Ridge QLD

Wowee! Not only one of the best QLD postings we've have in a long time* but it so happens it was the childhood home of a personal MA buddy. Once housing a big, boisterous family in the 70s and 80s, this is a classic 4 bedder (with pool) of still awesome...

21 Pettys Lane, Doncaster VIC

We're under no illusions about this one. We only came to say that for anyone with 1.5 million + to spend on 730 sqm of land in the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, these 'once in a lifetime' opportunities, funnily enough, seem to come up twice a week.

4/32 Hebe St, Bardon QLD

An intriguing proposition in Brisbane today. An old-timey cream brick exterior revealing a Mediterranean cool, studio pad inside. This one could really go either way; as a minimal inner-city paradise for a certain breed who trades material acquisition for...

17 George St, Torrens Park SA

An absolutely magical c.1961 home in the stately hills of Adelaide though being on huge land (and a deceased estate) it's being flogged for not much more than 'development potential'. For shame South Australians! We expect as such from sin Sydney's venal...

3 Couch St, Timboon VIC

27 Grove St, Kooringal NSW

A taste of Wagga wonderful this morn (we really need to get our feelers more round that way). This little winner has been lovingly and respectfully freshened up and owner Isabel has let us know this home was built in 1964 at the hand of respected...

Vermont Park Open Day

It's been a while since we checked in on the Boyd Foundation's bustling events calendar but this weekend is a particular ripper for those who revere progressive architecture but who, like us, are perpetually irked that civic planning and more highly...

Desecration nation – Melbourne edition

Sorry guys, after yesterdays St Ives discovery we wanted to let the whole negative trip rest but this morning it came like a kick to the shins once more. A text book case of the timeless elegance of Melbourne's most genteel suburb being ripped out and...

The Moderns is on till November!

We have been rather neglectful to not fully expand on the wonderful work of Sydney Living Museums and their celebration of Australian Modernism - time to remedy. 'The Moderns' is an exhibition and event series delving into Australian design and creativity;...

Keep on keepin’ on

It's always very gratifying to see a little press about our enduring struggle for the recognition of Mid-Century Modernist architecture in this country. Especially when simultaneously receiving bad tidings like the unholy demolition of Daryl Jackson's...
