Today is all about pedigree; two homes from two names which never fail to raise excited eyebrows, each with their own merry band of die hard fans. Though in this instance the homes we present also show two very different situations each has found itself in.
First up – old school? nu school? Just give us some Sydney School in the form of this clearly adored and updated home of immense scale by Russell Jack. You may know him from such celebrated (and protected) domestic architecture as his own home, Jack House (c.1956) and one of our special *hearts* Carter house (c.1965). This residence from what we can ascertain, was built later again around 1971 and bears all the trademarks of late stage, high end, nature driven Sydney Modernism – cathedral hardwood ceilings, expansive pooled courtyards, cork and carpeted floors, white painted brick walls forming a aesthetically feudal, though not unfriendly, fortress of family living. Ringed of course by the obligatorily stunning bushland hills which make Sydney one of, if not the, most gorgeous cities in the world to reside in. High times for high flyers and dreamy sighs from the rest of us.
