For Sale

4 Torres St, Red Hill ACT

Hey capital cats; what's the go here? We are smitten by this imposing residence of Hollywood-esq Hills drama including a bold butterfly roofline, double story stone feature wall, classic timber and glazing and a curious addition out back- a Modern Canberra...

546 Churchill Ave, Sandy Bay TAS

For all those left indignant by the previous Iwanoff, here's something a bit more original now (despite the recurring colonised kitchen). A mystery residence (c.1965) in fancy-lands Hobart town with more than a little beautiful timberwork and bulkhead...

‘Booth House’ 59 Oban Rd, City Beach WA

Though, to our minds, not exuding either the early, simple elegance of his 1960s projects, nor the wild, dynastic richness of some later landmarks this 1970's commission by Iwan Iwanoff (extended by the man again in 1973) is still acceptable with its...

23 Morland Ave, Stonyfell SA

A superfine & super refined residence in the Adelaide holding up a tradition of South Australian listings we have come to know and envy:- classic, higher-end MCM lines and design- incredible craftsmanship, with feature stonework deserving a special...

‘Porter House’ 30 Koornong Cres, North Warrandyte VIC

OMFG.A bold and early contender for MA house of the year (hell, maybe find the decade) is this unparalleled, mint original (check that stove FFS!), Yarra-side beauty, presenting as though you're handed the keys direct from the builder. The (obviously)...

3 Gidgee Ave, Templestowe Lower VIC

Just imagine taking a mellow Sunday arvo, carving through the barren streets of a new housing estate of the edge of any metro or regional place to view the house and land packages. See yourself walking through the display villages, the rows of insipid...

3 Fourth Ave, Lane Cove NSW

Hold onto your secateurs kids, for this residence may be simply splendid but that garden? Hoo boy! Held for 60 years and clearly beloved  - evident in the kitchen and bathroom still as sparkling as they day they were built (trust us, that's an incredible...

‘Simpson House’ 13 Alwyn St, Croydon VIC

Maybe the market is cooling or perhaps this is a locally perceived no-go zone (friends, it's Croydon, let us not split undue hairs here)? In any case this striking Mid-Century ripper with bedrooms and yard to spare seems like a bit of a bargain. We've left...

19 Clarence Ave, Klemzig SA

A very special house tonight from one our favourite suburbs to which we've never been - Klemzig, South Australia. This late 50s pioneer has withstood the trials of time and development due to its dedicated and passionate owner who has lovingly cared for...

23 Hopes Rise, Frankston South VIC

A bit of Franga fabulous today capturing that rectangular, upstairs/downstairs of many a beachcomber-esq, sea-side house design but with the bonus of a bangin' nostalgia trip for all those 70s kids out there -  timber walls, floating staircase, shag...

‘O’Neill House’ 9 Shearman Cres, Mentone VIC

For your consideration; one Walter Mason designed.1969 residence of beautiful brickwork and original bathroom inspiration, sitting within a stretch of similar stunners. Click forth for more mull and musing. 

17 D’Aguilar Rd, The Gap QLD

Brisvegans get ready to rumble, we've got the scoop on this unqualified killer never before seen on the market - Yowzer! A 1955 residence by architect Graham Peterson of firm Briggs, Peterson and Burnett. All kudos and high-fives go to the original owners...

59 Arabana St, Aranda ACT

Back to palate-cleansing purity with this gorgeous, c.1968 Canberra home by hall-of-famer Daryl Jackson. Like the timelessness of its beautiful bushland environs, this home has barely changed in 50 years but for a small (and overall sympathetic) kitchen...

139 Gympie Tce, Noosaville QLD

One image conveys 1000 words and illustrates the course of our built heritage past, present and future. It is inevitable that this lil' darling, in the centre of a nationally recognised, prestige holiday spot, will not be with us much longer. Let us simply...

2 Sturt St, Bourke NSW

A humble 60s homestead with more than a little Beachcomber vibes, albeit a good few hundred kms from the coast. MA Greetings to Bourke and a warm welcome to this far western outpost to our listings.

1B Angle Rd, Deepdene VIC

Back to some clean right angles and very early 70s (we're guessing) panache now with this Lewis Coote Homes home. Possessing enough eastern suburbs blanc inside to attract the norm-cores while retaining a pure Modern profile with its feature pool, gorgeous...

96 Jackson St, Wynyard TAS

Though not in the same architectural league as say, some 1930s Miesian-reduced residence of walls and glass, you cannot underestimate the innovation and newness this home in 1950s Tasmania, a small island who in the proceeding 150 years of white expansion...

‘Abrahams House’ 372 Beach Rd, Beaumaris VIC

And here we find ourselves again, at the residence continually eddying in the simmering centre that is the heritage V developer cauldron of Bayside Melbourne. We have listed this absolutely sensational residence of pedigree and prominence at least twice...

1/54 High St, Highgate Hill QLD

Perhaps a QLD Modernist can help us out with this one. A mystery as to date and architect, it is nonetheless rather alluring in its clean spaces, high ceilings and timber features. We suspect it also once had exteriors of unadorned concrete (oh la la!),...

43a Montagu St, Lenah Valley TAS

A few stalwarts shining through tonight - with thanks to regular spotter Tracey for locating this sensational, dynamic residence in the ever-reliable MCM 'burg of Lenah Valley. And we guarantee involuntary squeals will be released upon inspection of this...

‘Dixon House’ 4 Carrigal St, Balwyn VIC

A breathtaking lesson in the downsize; elegant and pristine in presentation, simple yet totally Modern in its considerations for light, lifestyle, materials and space. Designed by architect Frank Dixon in 1974 (whose work you may recall here) for his...

9 Coro Cres, Coromandel Valley SA

An Adelaide heartbreaker of epic, million dollar attributes and condition today. We say heartbreaker for only in this capital region do we see such c.1969 higher end craftsmanship, materials (including local hewn stone), expansive grounds and additions...

77 Woolley St, Taringa QLD

Though the recognition of Mid-Century design and materials pushes forth and the desire for 70s interiors gets stronger, it is thoroughly depressing to see an agent's opening pitch like this one, especially in the case of such a gorgeously crafted and...

11 Heggerton St, McCracken SA

For those who live for the never ending horizon and rumble of a surfside locale but err towards a more coffee-toned, 70s aesthetic this architecturally designed ripper may be for you. Breezy as you please-y and garnering appeal on an elemental level -...

4 Berry Crt, Highton VIC

Playing catchup with our listings backlog and sorry to advise but this one has just been snared, rightly so with such elegant architectural lines*, potential for restoration and ample yardage it's all a bit too enticing for $500k. Once again we have...

36 Lincoln Hwy, Port Lincoln SA

Admittedly it's got some heavy 'Behind the Candelabra' vibes in place of core Modernist ethos but hey it's Freaky Friday we're still on holidays so lets go there. This sprawling, waterfront palace of excess has so much happening we are not sure where to...

207 Nelson Rd, Mount Nelson TAS

First Tassie gem for 2019 and may everyone start their engines for this gorgeous timbered, light flooded, architecturally designed ripper complete with retreat (for all those mainland lob-ins). A typical offering from one of Hobart's great, yet...

‘McIntyre House’ 118 McIntyres Rd, Portland VIC

One last offering from South West Vic. before we swing away and another farm spread this one huge in both scale and pedigree.  A 1975 commission by the legendary Charles Duncan at the behest of a client whom (like many down in squattocracy row) has direct...

280 Gellibrand-Carlisle River Rd, Gellibrand VIC

If the crashing waves, salt and scrub isn't really your summer jam, then a south west turn from our latest beach shack will lead you into the lush forest and sweeping pastures of the greater Otways and this wonderfully homey property tucked into a special...

21 Parker St, Anglesea VIC

The text book. The template. The Class A in our taxonomy of The Australian Mid-Century Beach House; this beautiful, basic home of board, timber and large sections of glass speaks volumes about a certain set of priorities (hint- it's not fancy appliances...

5 Boronga St, East Jindabyne NSW

Our first freaky Friday for 2019 which is not so much freaky but rather insanely freakin' sublime. Unearthered by Modernist Australian Nicholas (on a recent summer stroll) it's not even for sale (2015 it was, 2 years too late we are) but in the case of...

116 Lorimer Rd, Beeliar WA

Our big takeaway from 2018? That although the earlier incarnations of Mid-Century domesticity will always have their fierce admirers - a 1950s Boyd cottage here, an early 60s apartment complex there -  there is currently a massive wave of love crashing...

13A Boomerang Ave, Mount Gambier SA

Hello 2019! And while the lucky ones can get out and enjoy the smaller, quieter or more remote places in our lives we're teaming with the theme and staying out of town for the next little while too. Today we find ourselves in the home of crater lakes and...

‘Toft House’ 129 Avoca Rd, Avoca QLD

Let's stay outta town with this regional Queensland surprise package. Frankly speaking regional Qld is most often the haunt of more down-at heel, dishevelled or eccentric Mid-Century offerings however this sensational spread a stones throw from Tomato...

23 Old Bass Hwy, Wynyard TAS

Sitting in the wings for literally half a year the day has arrived for this sweetie to shine. Right on the connecting road, yet also right on Bass Straight this little ripper requires only a small serve of love and care (and removal of those vertical...

‘Seccull House No.2’ 77-79 Smith St, Lorne VIC

A Christmas miracle confluence of premier Victorian beach town and preeminent Victorian architect, this residence was Guilford Bell's second commission for the Seccull family, completed a mere year after their city home was finished. Now, those of you...

27 Holmwood Ave, Anglesea VIC

Settle down children and we'll tell you a story. A tale of our very first foray into the world of MCM before we really understood the term or the subject. Back in mists of the 1990s, while researching an art project we went hunting for the all-Australian...

32 Gray St, Riverside TAS

Another in the basket of the doable, more than doable really, as this Lonnie lovely has striking Mid-1960s form (project home we dare say) which are nigh on impossible to reproduce with integrity, but is relatively unaltered inside. This leaves an...

4 Joshua Crt, Lara Vic

At this stage and with thousands of listings under our belt we really shouldn't be so surprised about the high calibre of architect designed gems sitting in little 'ol Lara. Maybe it's an argument proving that illogical prejudices of the geographically...

7-9 Panorama Place, Deloraine TAS

We've been holding on for Tassie to show us something special for a while and we're glad we waited, for this is gangbusters. A massive family home with a bunch of mainstream extras: retreat! man cave! huge land! With additional MCM fan boxes being ticked...

311 Rowan St, Golden Square VIC

Though perhaps not one for purists, this version of roomy family casa, beautifully appointed and speaking loud n' clear in the 70s vernacular is something we can totally get on board with. The condition of this one is awe inspiring and with little details which make...

73 Kenmore Rd, Kenmore QLD

Like the quietest person in the room finally speaking to reveal themselves as also the smartest, this elegant home flies utterly under the radar. The somewhat forgettable, coffee-toned street view belies wonderfully conceived interiors of a sophisticated...

24 Glengarry Ave, Glenalta SA

Time to revisit a familiar residential profile. A shape we've spotted and listed in every berg, coast to coast from Goonellabah to Marino to Wye River and beyond. Answerable to a particularly beachy (and Beachcomber) calling, but also appearing far from...

7 Macnamara St, Ferny Creek VIC

For those whose yuletide (and general lifetide) yearns for the trappings of a higher altitude then feast your eyes here. Indeed this realised project home was especially designed, by architects Alex Kostromin and Geoffrey A. Dobbin (under firm Lucas &...

33 Depper St, St Lucia QLD

Hailing from Brissy's major MCM catchment zone is this super dooper cutie-pie with elevated frontage, humble dimensions, awesome retro lines, neat-o condish and unbeatable charm. And don't forget some very motivated sellers. Get in quick!

‘Lara’ 365 McBurnie and Boags Rd, Walkerville VIC

As 2018 draws to a close, labouring minds and bodies begin to feel the shackles of routine slip towards more mild, unstructured days (perhaps with the bonus of dedicated digital deferral) and eyes start to wander locales in which to fully enjoy the breeze...

34 Stroud St, Bulahdelah NSW

Hello! And what a glorious potential arises before our very eyes this evening with a decommissioned house of worship. That said, the worship ain't stopping anytime soon as the awesome, unmistakable lines of 1964 architect MCM design has us alternatively...

9 Sydney Rd, Warriewood NSW

Like a subject of Reg Mombassa's Australian dreaming made manifest, this remarkable building awaits its fate to be handed down this Saturday. The sheer purity of clean squared forms - foundations, windows, steps, roof set on a verdant, flattened slope with...

3 Perry Crt, Kew VIC

Is this a fire sale? We've seen this one before (and frankly, though the house is unchanged, the old photos are way better). It sold less than two years ago for well above the current asking price. Hmmmmmmm. So, for those who missed it the first time cop a...

213a Campbell St, Newtown QLD

We've gotta give kudos where its due and that's to Queensland - their MA game over the last few months has been strong. And for all the snazzy, Palm Springs do-ups and pedigree pads we've listed of late in the northern state, we've gotta admit this might...

83A Beach Rd, Mentone VIC

Here's a grin-inducing slice of Florida on the bay. It might be the white and washed out blue, the palm trees, kidney pool and the painted masonry in gorgeous horizontals creating intervals with fencing which infuses it with specific Miami glam to our...

‘McKay House’ Lot 165 Burleigh Way, Mollymook NSW

Sit down gang, we've got something to show you and it is nothing less than a knee-buckling slice of pure Australian sublime. Not content with being a pristine example of exquisite 1960s indigenous architecture from one of the nation's most beloved...

7 Howes Crescent, Dianella WA

For those who know what they're looking at it's never difficult to spot beautiful MCM homes wherever they pop up. Take this classic residence in WA, in a suburb known for its Mid-Century offerings and from the get go we can tell it's something a little...

1/100 Hotham St, St Kilda East VIC

Behind this tired brick facade and overgrown garden sits a secretly sensational home of considered floor plan and sophisticated interiors, including that superb 'sunroom'. The dearly departed owner clearly kept their home in wonderful, unmolested condition...

12 Island View Cres, Encounter Bay SA

Our throats constrict from a wave of nostalgia which, at every click of this listing, pounds and tumbles us through memories of places, weather and moments now gone. This little holiday home in a small coastal town is the unrivalled epitome of pure...

‘Raymond House’ 19 Euree St, Kenmore QLD

Hairdresser to the stars. It's the type of owner one suspects would have always employed a fashionably progressive architect to build a swingin' 60s pad as indeed Mr. Theo Raymond did, commissioning Donald Spencer to conjure this sensation in1962 which he...

48 Sunhill Rd, Glen Iris VIC

An earthly treat today. In the middle of the chinz and gilded stronghold of Glen Iris sits this breathtaking residence of organic textures, neutral tones and bushblock vibes - all trademarks of the brothers Sibbel, a Victorian-via-Holland partnership of...

539 Vulture St East, East Brisbane QLD

We don't hold out much hope for this to remain standing as is, this corner beauty of sculptural exterior and rudimentary innards. Kinda like Iwanoff died with a felafel in his hand. Though we wish that a certain subset of Brisvegans - those of smart brain,...

‘Stargazer House’ 1/2 Taurus St, Balwyn North VIC

We've been dancing around this one for weeks trying to figure out the right tone in which to deliver this remarkable listing. A benchmark in Melbourne, indeed Australian, Modernist history: the first residential commission for architectural legend Peter...
