Our salty critique of this home’s sales pitch hit some raw nerves and drew ire from several corners today, not least with the agents themselves. It is heartening therefore to note that this evening the copy for the listing has been altered somewhat. A generous detailing of this homes wonderful MCM attributes (oh how we could go on ourselves!), as it so richly deserves, now taking up the main body. Of course there is a suggestion of development, (a given), but we’d like to hope that this more positive angle promotes a culture of celebrating, not dismissing, the vitality of such precious little pieces of Australian architecture, inviting all to re-think their own stance of what is valuable in day to day living. We know for certain this does not guarantee a happy ending for this stunning home and it’s clearly Mod loving vendors, but it does lend it a fighting chance.
