14 Daly Street, Clare SA

14 Daly Street, Clare SA

Vino nerds take note, a mere three-fiddy can find you in this resplendent, clearly architect-designed (maybe a project plan?) residence of solid brick, full-length windows, timber detailing and bathroom goals achieved (if you can see past the Batman angle...

‘Morton House’ 12-28 Forest Glen Rd, Woodford NSW

‘Morton House’ 12-28 Forest Glen Rd, Woodford NSW

Just as exposure to activity imbeds action in the memory of muscle, we are reminded of the comparable imprint into the soul when formative life is spent within great architecture. 'Morton House' is an impeccable example of Australian 20th Century domestic...

8 St John Rd, Norton Summit SA

8 St John Rd, Norton Summit SA

A startling residence siting astride its own mini-kingdom in the Adelaide Hills, as if Walter Gropius himself walked the gum dotted hills 90 years ago and decided this was the place for one of his white Internationalist designs, though the interiors are...

Caulfield VIC

Caulfield VIC

A private rental affair today, one suited to anyone who adores the swing of a classic Mid-Century pad in town, complete with all essential acutremonts such as tiki bar, pool, Tretchikoff above the bed & Modern cermics on the shelves but has not the...

30 Dalabon Cres, Waramanga ACT

30 Dalabon Cres, Waramanga ACT

Missed it by *that much* but still worth a post. This lovely home stands empty, ragged and weary (the Canberra metaphors abound) but there is something about those beautifully simple spaces, letting in the light at each turn and allowing the inhabitor to...

26 Fraser St, East Fremantle WA

26 Fraser St, East Fremantle WA

Don't send off that letter to Santa just yet, the year's not done and the gems are still falling from the sky including this, which just might the best in the West for 2019. A jaw-dropper from first click, this family-sized residence, held since draftsman...

681 Moggill Rd, Chapel Hill QLD

681 Moggill Rd, Chapel Hill QLD

A prime-time Modernist (c.1958), architect-designed residence is always so heartening to see in the Sunshine State and this one displays a creative and sophisticated progressivism which must have been nigh on alien in Mid-Century Australia, let alone...

59a Red Chapel Ave, Sandy Bay TAS

59a Red Chapel Ave, Sandy Bay TAS

An intriguing offering tonight in Tasmania. From the hand of the man who is claimed to have brought Modernist architecture to the Apple Isle, Esmond Dorney (not least sampled via his own wonderful residence in Hobart, now owned by the local council and...

10 Kosciusko Rd, Balwyn North VIC

10 Kosciusko Rd, Balwyn North VIC

Question:How can such as awesomely impressive Mid-Century residence of flawless build, complete northern orientation, drool inducing original features (the stone fire place, textured entry glass and the light boxes - oh those light boxes!), immaculate...

2 Bellaire Ct, Beaumaris VIC

In a landmark street and from a local legend as Baurmaris Modern gives us the rundown: "10 acres of land was purchased by developer/builder Max Sachs in the early 1960's - the land had been a chicken farm. Max shared his office in Brighton with architect,...

98 Appleby Rd, Stafford QLD

98 Appleby Rd, Stafford QLD

One part dynamic Queenslander, one part steamy, Rone dreamscape and all parts wonderful is this fixer-upper we missed in the recent inflow (under contract guys – sorry). Still, we wanted to post it as an example of what remains out there; houses of great...

16 George St, Torrens Park SA

16 George St, Torrens Park SA

At the time of posting this listing, you have approximately 75 minutes to inspect, line up your financial ducks and bid on this sensational family rambler in Adelaide foothills. A impressive, 2-storey residence (c.1958) it retains all of its era-specific...

8 Peter Street, Bell Post Hill VIC

8 Peter Street, Bell Post Hill VIC

16 Willora Rd, Eden Hills, SA

16 Willora Rd, Eden Hills, SA

A world of possibility for Adelaide creative types today. Known (and loved) locally as a well utilised public building for the Eden Hills Uniting Church, it's days of hosting playgroups and prayer groups have come to an end and, like so many of the...

1 Latham Dve, Portsea VIC

1 Latham Dve, Portsea VIC

Radiating the kind of sun-kissed beauty going hand-in-glove with fresh scrubbed skin, long sunsets and glowing kids (or adults) running amuck is this gorgeous Peninsula beach house. Though in a posh part of the blue ribbon state, this hushed and hidden...

14 Marie Way, Kalamunda WA

14 Marie Way, Kalamunda WA

We're not privy to the story on this residence but suffice to say it's been sitting quietly on our backburner, waiting to be posted for at least 8 months. Why it hasn't been snapped up is not for us to say, but what we will say is that if this c.1967...

51 Comer St, Brighton East VIC

51 Comer St, Brighton East VIC

Impressive MCM renovation/restorations are the order of this weekend with this example we believe to be an excellent one in the recent canon of greats. Thought the original architect is unnamed (anyone, anyone?) the present owners have employed Bower...

‘Miles House’ 4-6 Ogilvy St, Leongatha VIC

‘Miles House’ 4-6 Ogilvy St, Leongatha VIC

Gippsland gold shimmers through this morning with a listing by a notable architect, skillfully created as a family compound and now awaiting a rebirth. Designed by Geoffrey Woodfall as a commission for (and constructed by), local builder Mr. J Miles and...

20 Connell Rd, Oyster Bay NSW

20 Connell Rd, Oyster Bay NSW

We've seen a lot of Beachcombers in many of places over the years but the location and set up of this one well......*exhales in low whistle*And the present owners (who have seen to it that one doesn't need to construct an overcooked mega-mansion to partake...

4 Prowse Ave, Balwyn VIC

4 Prowse Ave, Balwyn VIC

It's not uncharitable to state that The City of Boroondara, a council which oversees the changing fortunes of the traditionally sedate suburbs such as Balwyn and North Balwyn in Melbourne, has at once presided over some of the richest pockets of...

13 Valley Rd, Highbury SA

13 Valley Rd, Highbury SA

We’ve finally listed this bad boy, after sitting around for ages, because we simply couldn’t forget the daring-do individualism tucked within this solid, low-slung Mid-Century design. Kidney-shaped lighting feature, internal planter, split levels and neato...

‘Torrens Townhouses’ 2C / 3 Davies Place, Torrens ACT

‘Torrens Townhouses’ 2C / 3 Davies Place, Torrens ACT

You'd be hard-pressed to find a one-bedroom apartment these days with the spatial generosity and solidity of build, let alone the supremely well-considered approach to design as this one, but then again we don't have our high and medium density housing...

41 Fisher Ave, Sandy Bay TAS

41 Fisher Ave, Sandy Bay TAS

Not as cut-price as some other Tassie fare, but when you have a magically northern orientated residence complete with gorgeous elements such as stacked brickwork, sweeping roofline and immaculate floor corkage all within in the fanciest suburb on the...

32 Warringah Cres, Eltham VIC

32 Warringah Cres, Eltham VIC

The wild permutations of this swirling world are creating schisms in the fabric of our reality. One could easily slip through a finely worn section, back to 1967 and make a home here - a textbook example of a Graeme Gunn designed Merchant Builder's home...

10 James Rd, Belair SA

10 James Rd, Belair SA

Another slice of hilltop potential divinity we'd do anything to sink our teeth into. A split level, c.1962, architect's* own family home on acres with views all over the shop. And at under $600k there may be a bit left to consolidate some textures,...

‘Zimmerman House’ 116 Bulleen Rd, Balwyn North VIC

‘Zimmerman House’ 116 Bulleen Rd, Balwyn North VIC

After that delectable European fare yesterday, let's go back to the cake shop for another hit. This one in what we'd also deem a hotspot of MMMM - AKA postwar, emigre, domestic architecture, with the name here giving it away off the bat. 'Zimmerman House'...

32 Aroona Rd, Caulfield North VIC

32 Aroona Rd, Caulfield North VIC

Let us now retreat back down to Melbourne and into the world of European delicacies with two very fine examples of Marvellous Migrant Melbourne Modern (MMMM) today. Starting with this gorgeous and untouched beauty and first one built (c.1963) in this noted...

‘Pronger House’ 45 Channon St, Gympie QLD

‘Pronger House’ 45 Channon St, Gympie QLD

A favourite MCM subset of ours, and rather little known, is the regional Australian success who knew a thing or two about progressive design, had the finances and the connections to create something special to revel in his achievements. ‘Pronger House’ is...

4/16A Richardson Ave, Claremont WA

4/16A Richardson Ave, Claremont WA

There’s something delightfully palate-cleansing (after such recently rich fare), to look over this elegant, original 1950s (?) apartment. This is not your usual 60s unit block cutie-pie either- but a very considered design, arrangement of space, walls and...

‘Loeliger House’ 33 Bellinghams Hill Rd, Ararat VIC

‘Loeliger House’ 33 Bellinghams Hill Rd, Ararat VIC

Ah the sheer bargain basementry of regional Australia. Where you can snag a builder's own, huge, c.1967 McGlashan Everist residence set on 7 acres with sweeping vistas of Mt. Langi Ghiran as you bob about in the central pool. Friends, lob-ins and/or the...

2 Markhill Plc, Heathmont VIC

2 Markhill Plc, Heathmont VIC

This stunning and unmolested Sibbel Builder's residence was just made for rainy, Melbourne days. Preferably while wearing an arran knit, corduroy flares, with Court and Spark playing on the turntable. Get yer glorious, crunchy 70s on, in full effect...

18 Vaux St, West Launceston TAS

18 Vaux St, West Launceston TAS

A lil' cutie pie MCM starter pack. Everything is here you need and importantly comes along in lovely, intact condition. West Lonnie once again proves it has great  Mid-Cenutry form and best of all the price range which put it on the table for most.

38 Castile St, Indooroopilly QLD

38 Castile St, Indooroopilly QLD

Sorry Queenslanders we're trying to list some current MCM goodness for you, but in the meantime check out this incredible monolith we've been alerted to sadly little too late as it sold in July. We are equal parts in awe of its commanding street presence,...

21 Kinross Cres, Floreat WA

21 Kinross Cres, Floreat WA

Though some agents, owners and renovators are starting to mistakenly conflate 'Palm Springs' domestic architecture with slapping white paint everywhere and planting a few succulents, this residence we feel strikes a pretty good and relatively considered...

33 Dickasons Rd, Heathmont VIC

33 Dickasons Rd, Heathmont VIC

The geographical impossibility of us snapping up this home, resplendent with such glorious details, design and condition makes us quietly weep. Dovetailing with his dismay is the sales pitch which limply suggests some kind of refurb 'to taste' (now what...

20 Beach Rd, Legana TAS

20 Beach Rd, Legana TAS

Mainlanders, we'd stress before checking this listing closer you affix yourself to your positions - rope, cable ties or perhaps nail through the feet will come in handy handy to combat your instant questioning of everything you hold dear about your present...

11 Peter Ave, Anglesea VIC

11 Peter Ave, Anglesea VIC

Though much of the beach shacks we post here are very modest, sometimes the classic Mid-Century beach house was a little more ambitious, built for any number of cousins, grandparents and drop-ins cycling through the seasons. This unbeatable residence is a...

9 Pendray Close, Northwood NSW

9 Pendray Close, Northwood NSW

A genius, northern orientated floor plan (which allows for midnight snacks in a private terrace for the grownups) is but one of many aspects which makes this heart palpitating home by William Workman so effortlessly stunning and sophisticated, that you'd...

7 Mullens Road, Warrandyte VIC

7 Mullens Road, Warrandyte VIC

We've listed a multitude of Alistair Knox homes over the years. From the super grand to the beach-side modest, from the ultra renovated to even a tract of project homes (and plans) this residence however is really humming our tune. Less rocky and more...

51 Kalang Rd, Elanora Heights NSW

51 Kalang Rd, Elanora Heights NSW

This morning is was a Beachcomber in Avalon Beach, stlll going strong though in need of repair and love. Tonight is the 'after' version on the down the coastline where not only has this example of Nino Sydney's iconic design been transformed beautifully -...

62 Riviera Ave, Avalon Beach NSW

62 Riviera Ave, Avalon Beach NSW

The one thing which separates this fixer-upper of the Mid-Century Modernist genus (and what a specific genus it is - a completely unsullied Beachcomber!) is the sales spiel. Any other day we'd see the agent ignoring the history, architectural significance,...

5 Homestead Cres, Skye SA

5 Homestead Cres, Skye SA

South Australia continueth the lesson in high-steppin' elegance with this insanely intact home atop bush land hill acreage. Displaying the kind of restraint seen in the dietary patterns of WASP ladies-who-lunch (that is to say - a super human ability to...

‘Dearie House’ 14 Cromer Rd, Beaumaris VIC

‘Dearie House’ 14 Cromer Rd, Beaumaris VIC

When we walked the blossoming spring streets at Beaumaris Modern Open Day one weekend ago (next year everyone - just do it!), little did we know one of the stunning examples for perusal would soon be hitting the market. 'Dearie House' designed by architect...

6 Banool Cres, City Beach, WA

6 Banool Cres, City Beach, WA

It's hard to work out which and what has been altered quite when (though there is mention of 1971, we can't be convinved those glass bricks appeared that early. However, it doesn't change the fact that this is a landmark party pad to rival any of the...

‘Orme House’ 15 Bluegum Cres, Frenchs Forest NSW

‘Orme House’ 15 Bluegum Cres, Frenchs Forest NSW

Here's the score - we've been alerted to this, a slice of classic, Sydney Mid-Century Modern domesticity (architect as yet unknown**) - in grave danger. We hear/tell that the market audience for this property so far has consisted of self-styled renovators...

2 Pam St, Beaumont SA

2 Pam St, Beaumont SA

Pam was up there as a most popular post-war, girls name. It became the common moniker of hippie chicks in the 60s, working mothers in the 80s and now Boomer grandmothers. Along with others of the era  - your Karens, Lindas, Barbaras, Carols and Sandras we...

‘Chowns House’ 40-46 Richmond Ave, St Ives NSW

‘Chowns House’ 40-46 Richmond Ave, St Ives NSW

Yet another unforeseen and breathtaking example of early, Post-War Australian Modern, this home has incredibly remained unmolested by anything or anyone for the last 60 years. We're going to assume the owner was a indie stalwart, a bush-seeker, a soul...

‘Lewis House’ 30 Wattle Valley Rd, Mitcham VIC

‘Lewis House’ 30 Wattle Valley Rd, Mitcham VIC

It’s been a while since we’ve been graced you all with a Sibble Built home. For those uninitiated, the Dutch-born, Sibbel brothers Martin and Herman (aided by one of their daughters) and officially known as Sibbel Builders (1964-1975), created an entire...

56 Marriott St, Coorparoo QLD

56 Marriott St, Coorparoo QLD

Causing a similar wave of nostalgia and glee one may feel when passed by a pristine mint -green Holden station wagon, this 1960s family rambler is cut from the same cultural cloth. Though pedestrian in its pitched tiled roof and relatively straight forward...

‘Holt House’ 16 Riviera Ave, Avalon Beach NSW

‘Holt House’ 16 Riviera Ave, Avalon Beach NSW

As the real estate riches continue to rain down from all corners of the country, we thought we'd start the week right with this sublime slice of Sydney School residential architecture. An (̶a̶s̶ ̶y̶e̶t̶ ̶u̶n̶n̶a̶m̶e̶d̶)̶  architect's own home built  c.1968...

‘Armstrong House’ 25 Grove St, Vermont VIC

‘Armstrong House’ 25 Grove St, Vermont VIC

Like those who fossick for gold, we know the range and the environmental factors which indicate a rich vein of that which we seek. In Australia, when looking at MCM residences, it is most promising to check the 'middle-ring' suburbs, those developed in the...

128 Lohr Ave, Inverloch VIC

128 Lohr Ave, Inverloch VIC

We love forays into the more experimental varieties of Modern architecture almost as much as we love a good Australian Mid-Century beach shack (they're design cousins really), so today we present a meeting of both. This soaring A-Frame house has an...

5 Valley Rd, Mount Waverley VIC

5 Valley Rd, Mount Waverley VIC

Though always optimistic, we didn't come down in the last shower and we know that a beautiful low-slung, MCM suburban home like this one sheltering and supplying a family with a lifetime of sunlit memories from that perfect northern orientation, hasn't got...

19 Waterfall Gully Rd, Burnside SA

19 Waterfall Gully Rd, Burnside SA

Earlier sales photos prove that the present owners have done a ripper job here bringing this 1960s residence back to its marvelous Mid-Century roots with the ardent removal of peach, floral and heavy furnishings and adding a pop of primary colour here and...

17 Smith Cres, Footscray VIC

17 Smith Cres, Footscray VIC

In a little Modern pocket of the otherwise Victorian-era suburb that is Footscray (check out number 8) indeed in perhaps in the most underrated street in the entire metro area, sits this home of a reportedly lovely couple, Don and Betty Watson, now for...

‘Symons House’ 14 Bonython Ave, Beaumont SA

‘Symons House’ 14 Bonython Ave, Beaumont SA

The essence of a childhood home and an architect designed, Mid-Century home especially, works its way into the young psyche like nothing else. Take this residence in Adelaide, the family home of present-day historian and MCM aficionado Stuart 'Modernist...

‘Welch House’ 6 Towri Close, St Ives NSW

‘Welch House’ 6 Towri Close, St Ives NSW

It always pays to letter drop.When agent Marcus Lloyd-Jones of Modern House (the only Mid-Century Modern real estate agency in the country) had his offer taken up to appraise this home (after popping a flyer in the letterbox) little did he know he was to...

128 Weekes Rd, Moggill QLD

128 Weekes Rd, Moggill QLD

We've hit the Freaky Friday jackpot today with not only an incredible, architect designed, enormous Mid-Century Modernist, riverside residence dating from the late 1950s, but one which is in such a dilapidated state as to render itself a Sam Rami set...

‘Husted House’ 3 Keith Ct, Brighton VIC

‘Husted House’ 3 Keith Ct, Brighton VIC

We have checked with the experts and can confirm is no actual Saint Keith. But if there was, we just know he'd be the Patron Saint of Longevity, Survival and Resolute Good Times in the face of life's endless trials. So we offer today a petition of atheist...

48 Coasters Retreat, Coasters Retreat NSW

For all the fish-in-a-barrell snidery directed at a certain subset of idle well-to-do women, with bottomless bank accounts, golden-haired children and 200k Insta followers* we'll actually be really disappointed if this doesn't fall into such hands. We...

59A Hale Road, Wembley Downs WA

59A Hale Road, Wembley Downs WA

This cutie-pie and deceased estate has just been snapped up and we suspect its days may be numbered. So if we cannot preserve that stunning fireplace (among other lovely Mid-Cenutry aspects) in reality, then the very least we can do it always keep it here...

‘Hertle House’ 25 Rodway Cres, Rangeville QLD

‘Hertle House’ 25 Rodway Cres, Rangeville QLD

We are learning new things every day here at MA, and today it's a name - Karl Hertle. Clearly a legend in this unlikely architectural spot of inland Queensland, Hertle is (was?) a builder from days when that meant something. Judging by this jawdropping...

110 Alexander Cve, Dianella WA

110 Alexander Cve, Dianella WA

This is perhaps the most affordable home we've seen in Perth in a long time and what's more it's a sensational, untouched gem (we suspect 1960s project home) for a true Modernist Australian to get in there and make it their own. Beams, joinery, dividing...

140 Alastair St, Lota QLD

140 Alastair St, Lota QLD

Even the agent can see this one is special. For all the down-at-heel-felafel-in-hand-QLD-rental presentation, the ping of ambitious, progressive and stright up cool architecture strikes with immediacy for those with the eye for it. Thought the architect...

89 Pellatt St, Beaumaris VIC

89 Pellatt St, Beaumaris VIC

Seasoned campaigners may picture first wave 1940s-50s bohemia when they hear the word 'Beaumaris' and their versions of timber and fibro domestic experimenta, produced by intellectual, pre-tv nature kids, however even in the 1970s Beauie was still building...

2 Overbury Drive, Clarence Park SA

2 Overbury Drive, Clarence Park SA

A classic 1960s family home, with so much Mid-Century pop and fizz - that flat-roof and breeze block carport is only the start -  though it looks to have had its original courtyard built in to make extra living space (we're guess it's a project plan of...

2 Cluden St, Holland Park West QLD

‘Tradewinds’ 5 Canadian Bay Rd, Mount Eliza VIC

‘Tradewinds’ 5 Canadian Bay Rd, Mount Eliza VIC

1 Hobart Street, Ringwood VIC

1 Hobart Street, Ringwood VIC

‘Davidson House’ 8 Ardell St, Kenmore QLD

1 Short St, Burleigh Heads QLD

1 Short St, Burleigh Heads QLD

The MCM arms race intensifies with Queensland now stepping up and slapping this down. A deceased estate from a family who clearly and rightfully adored this home since (building?) moving into it in 1965, this residence must be a long admired landmark of...

17 Lloyd Ave, Hunters Hill NSW

17 Lloyd Ave, Hunters Hill NSW

Not much to see here. Just your usual architect-designed home. Built late 60s. Never before sold. In as new condition. Sydney School aesthetic and provenance (architect – Peter Lind). With the regular run-of-the-mill harbor views. And access. Kinda meh...

‘Nadarajah House’ 38-40 Butcher St, Strathdale VIC

Though drowning in marvelous Modernist Australian homes at present, some will always cut through and demand to be shown ASAP. This incredible find in regional Victoria is such a home. Though teetering on the timeline of what we'd deem Mid-Century, the...

347 High Street Rd, Mount Waverley VIC

8 Beresford Cres, Gympie QLD

8 Beresford Cres, Gympie QLD

Snapped up before we could post it here (under contract as of today) nonetheless we just had to show you. Existing on a regional plain which hints at Edward Scissorhands suburbia, if populated by slightly more nasally accents and triffle desserts instead...

32 Glenard Dve, Eaglemont VIC

Nestled within the Walter Burley Griffin devised ‘Glenard Estate’ and just down the road from this Charles Duncan beauty we listed last year sits a similarly eye-popping residence. Though this one, a 1970s creation by architect Nicholas Griffin, is in such...

4 Hughes Plc, Armidale NSW

4 Hughes Plc, Armidale NSW

An astounding find in, of all places, Barnyard territory. From the outside it has the distinct architectural mood of the Case Study Houses program, such is the low-slung, minimal forms and courtyard/carport dynamics at play. The inside, granted, is rather...

4 Selbourne Ave, Rostrevor SA

4 Selbourne Ave, Rostrevor SA

We all know real estate agents get a bad rap but sometimes, just sometimes, that asessment is spot on. Take this residence for example, an incrediblly elegant, intact Mid-Cenutry home of rare architectural nouse. Now check the excrement planned to be piled...

22 Banoon Dve, Wynnum QLD

22 Banoon Dve, Wynnum QLD

As they say in the classics (or is that the socials?) GTFO. This nugget of brisbane MCM gold has just bumped to the top, becuase as a desceaed estate and dubbed 'a renovator' by the agent (and what a watery pitch it is) sounds like it could easily fall...

‘Loo York’ 156 McElhone St, Woolloomooloo NSW

‘Loo York’ 156 McElhone St, Woolloomooloo NSW

I little regional delight, not so cutting-edge, enlightening in its overall design but moreso a charming little home, chock-full of jaunty retro appeal with plenty of room to improvise, improve and love it up. 

9 Dalrymple Cres, Pymble NSW

9 Dalrymple Cres, Pymble NSW

We started the week with Pettit & Sevitt, and here we go again. This one has been extended, though it's such a sympathetic renovation done not long after the build that we cannot tell by the house pics which is what. - seemles. Never before sold and...

76 Aldgate Valley Rd, Aldgate SA

76 Aldgate Valley Rd, Aldgate SA

A  major entry in the glamour stakes and something to get those juices flowing this Friday knock-off is this unbelievably beautiful 1960s home which has undergone, to our minds, a praise-worthy contemporary up-do. Though the ubiquitous white paint is a...

12 Marshall St, Ivanhoe VIC

12 Marshall St, Ivanhoe VIC

This commentary is directed  to the agents; Dear James and Liz, we welcome this home onto MA for one reason and one reason only - the photography. Whomever you've hired to take these shots is a marvel of rare and precious talent. In less caring and...

118 Morialta Rd, Woodforde SA

118 Morialta Rd, Woodforde SA

A patch of simple, Mid-Cenutry modern domesticity (with a space for a leasurely outside shindig in summer), in an unassuming locale. When all is said and done this is all we'd really want.*sigh*

9 Millard Ave, Aitkenvale QLD

35 Pine St, Brighton East VIC

35 Pine St, Brighton East VIC

This one has undergone a freshen up (in fact the whole block has by the looks of an old listing) though it's super heartening to see the retention of most of the era- specific joy which makes this a ripper Modern city-living option. Still resplendant with...

16 Wentworth St, South Hobart TAS

16 Wentworth St, South Hobart TAS

Posthaste to the chiase gang, lest your knees buckle for this one, as the kids like to say, slays. From the very outset the stunning timber and brick countenance with white window detail, to the interior skillion beamed living and considered expanses of...

The Quaterdeck, Middle Cove NSW

The Quaterdeck, Middle Cove NSW

We Venture way out of our own date bounaries today as we have no idea of build date (but suspect it's a bit later than the 1970s) . Nonetheless, we've had so many little fixer-uppers lately we thought a detour to where the .03% lives would be a nice...

48 Pioneer Rd, Grovedale VIC

48 Pioneer Rd, Grovedale VIC

Despite the not great orientation and a rather pedestrian back end we see a touch of Modern joy here (Carport, fireplace, dynamic roof line) which could be embraced and enticed out of is downtrodden shell. Certainly not a bad starting place for a creative...

43 Mitchell St, Sunnybank QLD

43 Mitchell St, Sunnybank QLD

Ol' mate Tom here is so excited to extoll the virtues of the nearby shopping centre (as we suppose the opening of yet another Chemist Warehouse, banal nail salon and enlarged Kmart full of trinketry is what makes life worth living) that he affords this...

15 Cochranes Lane, Hurstbridge VIC

15 Cochranes Lane, Hurstbridge VIC

Pull our your drool-cups, this one's a ripper. Looking to be a 1950s example of lightly constructed Moden architecture with perhaps a later, harmoniously sympathetic extension of besser and timber ceilings, we hold no doubt someone was at the helm here who...

5 ‘Bauhaus’ 43-45 Sydenham Ave, Manifold Heights VIC

Are you a big fan of pedigree Australian Modernism? Always dreamed of living in, even buying, a Boyd, Clerehan or a Gunn but just a bit short of the usual $1 million plus these historical homes command. Maybe you're even a first home buyer with no Bank of...

158A Steele St, Devonport TAS

158A Steele St, Devonport TAS

Neat, stright and true. This little ripper with just enough Mid-Cenutry vibe but also plenty of scope to open it up and see where you can go. And really, a whole house, in this condish with these lovely pared back lines starting at $200k? Yep, it's not a...

‘Courtyard House’ 4 Staddon Close, St Ives NSW

‘Courtyard House’ 4 Staddon Close, St Ives NSW

B&W images by Max Dupain Pettit and Sevitt project homes of the 1960s and 70s are a staple here for us and its always a sight for sore eyes when those familair mission brown beams and white brick walls float up on a feed, this example however is a cut...

8 Simpson Dve, Mount Waverley VIC

8 Simpson Dve, Mount Waverley VIC

A suburban delight in cream brick, timber detail, cork flooring and extended formation of perky skillion roof. Naturally for the area it exists on the sharp edge of 'development' danger though in such beautiful original condition and magnificent retro...

22 Colchester Dve, Doncaster East VIC

22 Colchester Dve, Doncaster East VIC

There is no pollyanna pretenses here, this home is not long for our world. And though it lends itself to a magnificent renovation, keeping much of the original charm and classic features (pool, raked ceilings, freestanding fireplace, layout), we are not...

1270 Bridgewater Lakes Rd, Cashmore VIC

1270 Bridgewater Lakes Rd, Cashmore VIC

In a grassy-plained, Victorian outpost closer to South Australia than Melbourne, someone with great pragmatism and sharp design eye built this wonderfully Modernist house for the local airport(strip?) manager. Now sitting empty it remains a testament to...

64 Gascoyne St, Kings Meadows TAS

64 Gascoyne St, Kings Meadows TAS

Reading through the agents blurb we're not too sure if this was the work of Thomas Tandy, or rather a local example comparable to his architecture, which is a roundabout way of saying this is an elegant slice of Mid-Century Modernist domesticity in the...

5 Summit Cres, Ringwood North VIC

5 Summit Cres, Ringwood North VIC

Sitting at the other end of the time-scale which we may invoke for Mid-Century and Modernist homes, though still in the same suburb as yesterday's lovely timber residence, is this double story home of a deep 1970s aesthetic with unadorned materials such as...

649 Ringwood-Warrandyte Rd, Ringwood North VIC

649 Ringwood-Warrandyte Rd, Ringwood North VIC

We start this week with two variations of our Modernist Australian style spread in the same suburb. Firstly this pretty, timber-clad Mid-Century home with retro-jaunty lines just aching for a little love. Sitting on over an acre in the development belt...

13 Hyland Ave, Darlington SA

13 Hyland Ave, Darlington SA

17 McCann Cres, Lenah Valley TAS

Ain't nothing quite like a straight-as, minty condish Lenah Valley lovely to brighten us up for the winter weekend. Lean into some rest and kick back with this one.

48 Trevallyan Dve, Daisy Hill QLD

48 Trevallyan Dve, Daisy Hill QLD

Last sold in '72 we're guessing this one was built a smidge before then and though looking a little tired now could be a sensation with the bare bones (and pool) to re-imagine it into a Mid-Century beauty, keeping that unreal concrete brick and timber...

66 Broadway, Dunolly VIC

66 Broadway, Dunolly VIC

Running with yesterday's listing of an incredible church sell-off, here today we see a successful conversion of a similar public building. Though aesthetically it's a bit 80s/90s for us there is no denying the joy of the retained original features integral...

1494-1496 North Rd, Clayton VIC

8 Duffy St, Ainslie ACT

Being around so long we do find a bit of repeat custom, and this one in the ACT is a particularly welcome return. For sale three years ago, this incredible and clearly cherished c.1957 slice of Modern history is now up for grabs as a rental. Which one...

11A Timber Ridge, ‘Winter Park Estate’ Doncaster VIC

11A Timber Ridge, ‘Winter Park Estate’ Doncaster VIC

To our minds, one particular vision of Australian Modernism really comes into its own in these winter months, when the sun is low (and if in southern states, the chill and drear settles in for a stay) and that is the organic, early 70s, Sydney school...

‘Ricard House’ 2 Annetta Ct, Wheelers Hill, Vic

‘Ricard House’ 2 Annetta Ct, Wheelers Hill, Vic

Looking past the 1990s slathering of franked-credit mint, daytime-tellie grey you can get the sense that this is not only a 1960s Modernist design but an incredibly intelligent and well-conceived one at that. Northern orientation, flat roofline, easy flow...

2 Gray Place, Weston ACT

2 Gray Place, Weston ACT

A welcome return today to super minimal, clean Modernist spaces courtesy of Pettit and Sevitt and the ACT rental market. Yes! The architectural project home dream can be yours to lease and make your own, soaking up that cork, slate and timber (whilst...

13 Frank St, Para Hills SA

13 Frank St, Para Hills SA

With similar style homes of a comparable condition in this 'burg selling for only the high 200s, one wonders what alternative universe is gripping this state, sucking all into a vortex of supreme affordability. Let's not question it too deeply, instead let...

40 Bambara Cres, Beecroft NSW

A MCM dreamboat today. The perfect combo of 1960s set plan chic - reportedly a Nino Sidney 'Sundowner' project design - with the size, amenity, landscaping and extras (pool!) our contemporary souls desire. This darling residence unchanged and unsold for...

62 Hillcrest Dve, Eden Hills SA

The market might be slowing but it's not backwards (just yet anyways) and tonight we inflict yet another cut of 1000 to our eastern seaboard souls in the form of this off the charts, 1960s ripper of Nino-Sydney-rectangular- double-storey profile, timber...

8 Hillside Dve, Campbelltown SA

8 Hillside Dve, Campbelltown SA

A fairly modest, suburban home reveals itself to possess wonderful lines and a steadfast progressive design directly from the 1960s. Fereday Homes is a new one for us and a burl on the 'Googs isn't giving it up - so who of you knows the score? We'd imagine...

215 Kooyong Rd, Toorak VIC

215 Kooyong Rd, Toorak VIC

Didn't have a casual $5.5 million (don't forget that stamp duty now) back in '15 to pick up this sensational slice of solid 70s? Looks like someone did and now they're happy to let it sit around empty, that is, until they let it out. Here is yet another...

58 Mayfair St, Mount Claremont WA

58 Mayfair St, Mount Claremont WA

A rather astounding find in WA. An early (for Australia) and most certainly architect conceived foray into Modernist theory of design and construction. With a boldly experimental construction on a large sloped site featuring double story walls of glazing...

5/1 Percy St, Devonport TAS

5/1 Percy St, Devonport TAS

To those cynics out there who claim that this 'fad' of Mid-Century Modernist design is only for the wealthy, who deride it as a cycling 'trend' for bored housewives-cum-influencers or snooty architecture nerds with effortless incomes - we say pooh pooh! In...

6 Perseverance Rd, Tea Tree Gully SA

6 Perseverance Rd, Tea Tree Gully SA

Not being locals we suspect that the delightful sounding Tea Tree Gully is perhaps a little less desirable than certain other locales in Adelaide, reflected in the price tag of this lovely Modern (c.1963) residence. Constructed in solid brick, expanses of...

‘Bailey House’ 115 Killeaton St, St Ives NSW

‘Bailey House’ 115 Killeaton St, St Ives NSW

Two certainties are apparent here:This home is one of magical Mid-Century Modern expression, even if we only glance at 2 images. That streetface alone; a skillion roofed, geometric configuration of textures -  brick, stone, windows, and panel, is enough to...

‘Frank House’ 5 Patula Place, Menora WA

‘Frank House’ 5 Patula Place, Menora WA

Almost exactly 2 years ago we listed this Iwanoff beauty and here we go again because we'd never shirk the opportunity to show it off for those who may have missed it the first time. Very nicely refurbed and impeccably furnished it reaffirms the...

81 Verdon St, Warrnambool VIC

81 Verdon St, Warrnambool VIC

Ah 1960s Warnambool. A land of Tag Walter designed wonders, where pleasantries were exchanged over a hot pot of tea, a choice of neenish or maids of honour tarts and all repression was dutifully swallowed and pasted over with brittle smiles. One can only...

‘Jacobs House’ 36 Cleveland St, Wahroonga NSW

‘Jacobs House’ 36 Cleveland St, Wahroonga NSW

A damn fine second Sydney School example now, an offering from one of the headmasters therof  - a 1963 Russell Jack designed, award winning home in near mint condish, which (from all feet on-ground reports) is sooooo extra-extra, more than the newer sale...

44 Kitchener St, St Ives NSW

44 Kitchener St, St Ives NSW

‘Funston House’ 34 Hardinge St, Beaumaris VIC

The air in this one is thick with memories, scents and the spirit of original Beaumaris bohemia. Bouncing off the curtains, beamed ceiling and wildly angular spaces one can almost hear the late night froth and thrash of ideas, barefoot guests, wine being...

16 Gayer Ave, Wangaratta VIC

Many of you were enthralled by 'Clayton House' in Melbourne a few days ago; its smooth, fuss-free expanses of brick, timber ceilings and walls of windows exuding a calm and considered set of Modernist spaces in which to reside. Well, for a lot less cash...

‘Clayton House’ 11 Jeffery St, Blackburn VIC

11 Kennedy St, Keilor VIC

55 Sunnyside Rd, Glen Osmond SA

Following the coast round to Victoria we spy another shining gem of a beach home that, although in a relatively modest patch of sand and paddock, resonates with the simplicity of pure Modern. Maybe it's the white (in this case actually most appropriate),...

35 Barbara St, Port Elliot SA

35 Barbara St, Port Elliot SA

In such a (thankfully) egalitarian society as ours it's against our general tenor and legalities to have private ownership of natural assets such as rivers or beachfront, so when straight up access comes with a property it can be enthralling. And nothing...

2015 Point Nepean Rd, Tootgarook VIC

As broached in our previous listing, here we find yet another example of smaller, 1960s unit block though this time it's the 'after' shot. Modernist Australian Steph purchased this little 3 unit block on the drive to the Mornington Peninsula a good 2...

12 Odowds Rd, Warragul VIC

12 Odowds Rd, Warragul VIC

After all the heady offerings in both history and pricing of late, we though it due for a little palate cleanser. Something simple, something humble, in less illustrious location and with a logical level of attainability. This lovely 1960s home with crisp,...

‘Gubbins House’ 14-16 Riverside Tce, Barwon Heads VIC

23 Garfield Street, Klemzig SA

‘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...

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

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

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

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

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

‘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

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

9 Sydney Rd, Warriewood NSW

Like a subject of Reg Mombassa's Australian dreaming made manifest, this remarkable (c.1954) 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...

3 Perry Crt, Kew VIC

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...

‘Torrens Courtyard Housing’ 100 &102 Batchelor St, Torrens ACT

‘Torrens Courtyard Housing’ 100 &102 Batchelor St, Torrens ACT

Something a little more unusual today, well rather, two things. This double offer of adjoining 3 bedroom 'dupli' AKA 'Torrens Courtyard Housing' (c.1966) with the disappointing banality of 'development' rah-rah handing over their heads. We think these...

213a Campbell St,  Newtown QLD

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

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

‘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

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

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

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

‘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

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

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

‘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...

‘Sonoran Haus’ 36 Reed St, Ashmore QLD

‘Sonoran Haus’ 36 Reed St, Ashmore QLD

An architect's (Les Nyerges) own home built on the late edge of Mid-Century (c.1978) as most would recognise but which nonetheless has the presentation, many elements and all the beauty of earlier Modernist style especially as it has now been embraced,...

239 Peats Ferry Rd, Hornsby NSW

239 Peats Ferry Rd, Hornsby NSW

We do love our freaky Fridays, when we can sip a knock-off cocktail and click thru a little individual joie de vivre, such as this unapologetic dream of structure and forms, colour and textures. This sample of joy fits our bill and then some. No judgement...

8 Ford Ave, Torrens Park SA

8 Ford Ave, Torrens Park SA

Another very intact c.1950s original which has also been lovingly and expertly renovated - geeze there are some clever peeps about. This one includes a rather stunning pool area and (we think) the perfect contemporary duel-level plan of family on top and...

‘Ryttner House’ 9 Bickhams Crt, St Kilda East VIC

‘Ryttner House’ 9 Bickhams Crt, St Kilda East VIC

Woah, woah WOAH kids - the year is ending and the market is going hog-wild so naturally up pops another absolute killer. An already quintessential c.1962 home by Melbourne Mid-Century architect-about-town (and of European émigré stock) Harry Ernest, which...

202 Markham St, Armidale NSW

202 Markham St, Armidale NSW

Staying regional and with a warm welcome to the first time listed, rural centre of Armidale. This lovely, modest home has been lovingly looked after and repaired by the present owners. Built in 1969 it stands the test of time and though the original flat...

4 Remony Ave, Highton VIC

4 Remony Ave, Highton VIC

We're getting down to personal brass tacks with this one, as we saw it IRL over the weekend and within a few hours had the plans laid out in our minds to escort this wonderful, rambling, architect designed family home (in a locale renowned for such) into...

4 Theodore Ct, Toorak VIC

4 Theodore Ct, Toorak VIC

Blow us down with yet another surprise listing kids. A pedigree home from a pedigree berg treated with a respectful (if rather flamboyant) hand that we could only wish for some other residences we have listed in the vicinity. An exceptional work by Anatol...

27 Bellevue Dve, Bellevue Heights SA

27 Bellevue Dve, Bellevue Heights SA

For us, the magic of today's offering is all in that dynamic roofline and street presentation (including that superb landscaping), a retro-futurist slice of housing so pixel perfect it could be the test slide for a new Incredibles movie. For many others it...

69 Yeramba St, Turramurra NSW

69 Yeramba St, Turramurra NSW

From retro ramblers in WA >  Melbourne Bayside pedigree > today, though we puff along a rapidly spinning wheel of homes to list, we are kept exhilarated and astounded by the breadth and variation found in our Australian Modern taxonomy and today we...

‘Lydamere’ 11-13 Bradford Rd, Mount Martha VIC

‘Lydamere’ 11-13 Bradford Rd, Mount Martha VIC

We apologise in advance for the bait and switch, for although this is a legitimate listing and still wonderful home (with a few beach house extensions) and the main building remains intact, we cannot avert our eyes from the original; a veritable lesson in...

110 Preston Point Rd, East Fremantle WA

110 Preston Point Rd, East Fremantle WA

Who knows what the story is here (we'd wager a deceased estate) but we're pretty confident in any case it's not long for this world. Although the agent rather strangely ping/pongs (but mostly pongs) between BUILD YOUR DREAM HOUSE hysteria and trifling...

148 Kenmore Rd, Fig Tree Pocket QLD

148 Kenmore Rd, Fig Tree Pocket QLD

Yet more alarm bells ringing country wide, today in Brisbane where a wonderful, never-before-sold residence from Modern era Queensland stalwart Donald Spencer is on the market. The most pressing concern is that next door (an updated yet also lovely home...

‘Beddison Swift House’ 5 Crown Rd, Ivanhoe VIC

‘Beddison Swift House’ 5 Crown Rd, Ivanhoe VIC

A rare and precious example in the Australian, specifically Melbourne, modern story has popped up for sale. A collaboration between our heavy hitters Neil Clerehan and Guilford Bell in the form of this domestic commission predicated on multi-generational...

‘McCafferty Residence’ 39 Victoria Tce, Kings Beach QLD

‘McCafferty Residence’ 39 Victoria Tce, Kings Beach QLD

We submit for your Friday perusal a sleek residence of late Modern lines and pure 70s glamour and if certain sub-sets of design can evoke a place and time as genres of music do then this baby is sweet Yacht Rock all the way. Hefty horizontals, sculptural...

‘Grant House’ 14 Pasadena Ave, Beaumaris, VIC

‘Grant House’ 14 Pasadena Ave, Beaumaris, VIC

As we comfort ourselves with the news that one of Melbourne's most original and worthy MCM homes has been saved via purchase on the open market, we sadly have to sound the sirens yet again. Just across the way from Boyd's Bridgford House, sits this home by...

Lot 1 33 Katunga St, Kenmore QLD

Lot 1 33 Katunga St, Kenmore QLD

Solid builds continue north with this careworn, Kenmore killer by local architect of note Robin Gibson c.1963. There are some architectural aspects here we have come to expect from Queensland residences, familiar to many global locales similarly beholden...

58 Rosenthal St, Campbell ACT

58 Rosenthal St, Campbell ACT

A commanding residence in Canberra** with all the promise of a blockbuster though which, to our mind, is missing a little something. Sensational bones (that carport & courtyard walls - woah), build and grounds notwithstanding the interiors are kinda...

3 Panorama Ave, Hawthorndene SA

3 Panorama Ave, Hawthorndene SA

Another lovely home we've had sitting in the wings for too long. This one has also seen a whiten-up inside but you cannot deny those striking lines, spaces and overall MCM flavoured brilliance on show. **Update** Thanks to Steven at MCDA who has cited this...

21 Richmond Tce, Richmond VIC

21 Richmond Tce, Richmond VIC

It doesn't get more Richmond than this place. A lazy waltz down to The 'G in the heartland between Swan and Bridge and yet this ultimate city pad is so much more, thanks to that elemental design with northern-faced living all zoned to the back, sleeping...

‘Pearl House’ 72 Gordon Street, Elsternwick VIC

‘Pearl House’ 72 Gordon Street, Elsternwick VIC

Let's celebrate the end of the week with an absolutely stunning slice of Melbourne Europa, this time from Fooks and Kagan colleague Austrian born Kurt Popper. A super glamorous, 2-storey residence built as a commission for a Mr David Pear c.1956 and...

514 Deviot Rd, Deviot TAS

514 Deviot Rd, Deviot TAS

Don't we live for better or worse live in a globalised nation where good coffee, digital connectivity, flexible employment and cheap flights are plentiful? Maybe not. But still doesn't really help us explain to recently landed aliens how some Australians...

24 Garema St, Indooroopilly QLD

24 Garema St, Indooroopilly QLD

Daniel, Dan, Dannyboy. Look, love the ham act but we think you cut the whole saga a bit short - you missed that explosive ending where a mob of cool kids, professionals, families and learned locals come marching around the corner with pitchforks and...

‘Wright House’ 24 Dilkara Way, City Beach WA

‘Wright House’ 24 Dilkara Way, City Beach WA

The Land of Iwanoff has rolled to the top of the Faraway Tree once more and when we climb up this time we find a beautiful, slightly more demure (if that can be said of Iwanoff) example of his wonderful domestic collection. Proudly flaunting that...

‘McKernin House’ 32 Tristania St, Doncaster East VIC

‘McKernin House’ 32 Tristania St, Doncaster East VIC

Though having undergone an earlier white-out (we suspect of the 1980s, great dame kind) the allure of this gorgeous, elegant home holds our attention, especially that front living with floor to ceiling windows and sensational dividing wall fireplace with...

49 Hallett Rd, Burnside SA

49 Hallett Rd, Burnside SA

We are under no illusions that this will be standing in 2 years time. Everything from the marketing (never knew a 6 bedroom, 3 bath house could constitute 'vacant land') to that mournful music they selected for the video, has all the hopeful outlook of a...

20 Maker St, Rangeville QLD

20 Maker St, Rangeville QLD

The second, just-add-snazz Sunshine State listing is a smaller affair, though a lot of time and energy has gone into this lovely flat-roofed gem to address the duel demands of fussy mainstream buyers whilst keepin' the Modernist lines alive. Though...

‘Nichols House’ 1 Thornton Pde, Wavell Heights QLD

‘Nichols House’ 1 Thornton Pde, Wavell Heights QLD

You know all things MCM are reaching critical mass when you have more than one listing from Queensland which has undergone a fancy renovation by longstanding Brisbane firm Robin Spencer Architects which embraces its roots in Modern concepts and materials....

114 Fincks Road, Heathmere VIC

114 Fincks Road, Heathmere VIC

With a steady crop of lovely and affordable homes continually coming onto the South Australian market, Melbourne folk could be forgiven for packing it all in and making a run for the boarder, though before they cross over they may just wanna stop by this...

‘Arlington’ 6/351 Edgecliff Rd, Edgecliff NSW

‘Arlington’ 6/351 Edgecliff Rd, Edgecliff NSW

We've listed a number of Seidler apartments over the years dotted around Sydney, though we think this may be a first from 'Arlington' his huge, c.1965-66 complex of spacious residences in concrete and masonry with that dynamic drawbridge entry, bringing...

‘Quamby’ 1/3 Glover Ct, Toorak VIC

‘Quamby’ 1/3 Glover Ct, Toorak VIC

A landmark of early Australian Modernism cementing (pun!) the reputation of Sir Roy Grounds as one of the state's and subsequently the country's premier progressive architects, 'Quamby' is a set of 6 flats built in 1941. A brief architectural rundown from...

‘Rush House’ 145 Springdale Rd, East Killara NSW

‘Rush House’ 145 Springdale Rd, East Killara NSW

Hold onto your jaws everyone this one has been brought to our attention** and goes straight to the top with a bullet - a breathtaking, c.1959, duel level classic by architect Harold R. McCauley. Soaring ceilings, dramatic walls of windows rising over...

28 Feathertop Ave, Templestowe Lower VIC

28 Feathertop Ave, Templestowe Lower VIC

An lovely listing today, the childhood home of Modernist Australian Eleanor, which touches on a few of our regular obsessions. Firstly that it was built in typical post-war fashion by her parents in 1964 and her father, an engineer but not architect, was...

5 View Point Rd,  McCrae, VIC

5 View Point Rd, McCrae, VIC

One for the purists, once again by the bay and mystery of provenance to boot. This sensational, (clearly higher strata*) architect designed family home in all original condition is a splendid example of later era Modernist domesticity. Those who have not...

7 Johnson Street  Kotara, NSW

7 Johnson Street Kotara, NSW

A cheerful, architect designed home in the Newcastle 'burbs, just busting with classic 1960s features: beautiful horizontal lines, timber inbuilt robes, flowing split level design around a central courtyard, walls of windows, internal planters...

‘Brealey House’ 128 Kananook Ave, Seaford VIC

‘Brealey House’ 128 Kananook Ave, Seaford VIC

As the days draw closer to summer, it's homes like this which start coming into their own. Dripping with the romance of Mid-Century bayside Melbourne which, before the arrival of money and it's decline into tracts of nouveau mansions, was a bohemian...

177 Farmborough Rd, Farmborough Heights NSW

177 Farmborough Rd, Farmborough Heights NSW

We welcome Farmborough Heights to the regional MCM residence hit parade and the rest of you to Freaky Friday (a few hours early). And what more to say than hooray for small town eccentrics and their dreams made manifest (with the help of architects -...

113 Kingston Tce, North Adelaide SA

113 Kingston Tce, North Adelaide SA

A fancy pants and super un-molested 1960s corker in what must be one of Adelaide's premier suburbs (going by the price tag anyways). Rumours abound that is was once Amanda Vanstone's digs, though let's not let that put you off, not when you have a splendid...

1/98 Warrigal Rd, Parkdale VIC

1/98 Warrigal Rd, Parkdale VIC

Though rather blanco-blando on the inside, we couldn't say no to the exteriors of this great 2 bedroom apartment, built in the days when living on this scale was made as desirable as possible for the inhibitor, rather than the investor. Clean and...

Bendigo VIC

Bendigo VIC

A Modernist Australia exclusive today with the off-market presentation of this rather retro-fabbo home in wonderful condition. This solid brick, c.1964, elevated residence of 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom (and what a beauty it is!) and established gardens has a...

78 Derinya Dve, Frankston South VIC

78 Derinya Dve, Frankston South VIC

Only for those with rose coloured glasses (or maybe glasses half full) comes this broken down beauty. Beyond the obvious cavalcade of dereliction, water stains, tile grime and the echo of boots on grainy floors is the promise of a dreamy half-acre compound...

2 Wendy Ct, Heathmont VIC

2 Wendy Ct, Heathmont VIC

When listing next door at the start of this year we just knew (or perhaps a little birdy told us) this home would be popping up on the market soon and were already fearful of what kind of sales campaign, and hence buyers, might be in line for it. Sadly,...

15 Hudson Pde, Avalon Beach NSW

15 Hudson Pde, Avalon Beach NSW

This eye-catcher has been sent in by more than a couple of you and rightly so - you cannot ignore that intoxicating mix of exterior stone, white framing and glazing in a chic internationalist rectangle, a clinical Modernist form almost incongruously placed...

‘Silberberg House’ 34 Maxwell Grove, Caulfield, VIC

‘Silberberg House’ 34 Maxwell Grove, Caulfield, VIC

Back to one of our favorite chapters in the Australian Modern story; Marvelous Migrant Modernist Melbourne, and this beautifully kept and cherished home now up for sale for the first time since built in 1962. The residence of Gertie and Harry Silberberg a...

11 Merrifield St, Castlemaine VIC

All you inner north-side cool kids looking over the horizon and dreaming of the great country power move; are you sick of the traffic, lack of space and smog but can't quite come at the usual offering of 1800s cottage or 1980s nu-estate homes located in...

26 Clovelly Cres, Lynwood WA

26 Clovelly Cres, Lynwood WA

One for the treasure hunters out west. This astounding rental is hiding itself under a thick patina of neglect, but those with MCM eyes can instantly pick up the glimmer just below. Not just another rundown 50 year old building of questionable materials...

‘Bridgford House’ 242 Beach Rd,  Black Rock VIC

‘Bridgford House’ 242 Beach Rd, Black Rock VIC

When checking a constant stream of MCM Australian Homes as they pop up on the market we can sometimes get a little complacent about just how innovative and in-tune with our emerging lifestyle many of these designs were, but nothing brings it back into...

17 Brett Ave, Hornsby Heights NSW

17 Brett Ave, Hornsby Heights NSW

With remarkable Mid-Century home renovation still front of mind we spy this ripper and dream big (if it can snag just the right owners that is). Though looking a little careworn, there is so much to work with, repair and enhance and aspects we can...

5 Hyton Cres, Croydon VIC

5 Hyton Cres, Croydon VIC

Refreshing, refurbing, renovating. This, without exception, is the most common topic of inquiry we receive here at MA. Where to start? How to do it well and who can help in every aspect? So much so that coming soon we shall have an exciting new aspect to...

10 Loparo Court, Nambour QLD

10 Loparo Court, Nambour QLD

A word to the Byrdes - forget the Goldie (and Mullumbimby) we've got a spot for you a few hours further up on the Sunshine Coast instead. Huge kudos to the owners for balancing on that fraught original Vs refurbish tightrope with aplomb because this...

21 Beasley Street, Torrens ACT

It's nearly five on Friday arvo, time to grab that knock off, lean back and click through some MCM fantasy-camp fodder of the highest order with this jaw-dropper, proving once again that our capital is all at once political cesspit and progressive...

26 Dudley Cres, Marino SA

26 Dudley Cres, Marino SA

Can we confirm this is a real Beachcomber? No, not the salty-flavored, wood gathering boho Liz Taylor from The Sandpiper type, but rather the Nino Sydney house plan adored by owners and Australian Modernists alike? To our untrained eye we believe no as the...

23A Wonga Rd, Ringwood North VIC

23A Wonga Rd, Ringwood North VIC

We got word of this one less than 24 hours ago and we've become so obsessed with this dreamy offering we have to get it up right here, right now. So, for your consideration; a large casa for families, never before sold. In unfathomably brilliant condition...

4 Leons Ct, Blackburn VIC

4 Leons Ct, Blackburn VIC

A common trait to highly considered, Modern designed residences and an aspect which makes them so inciting to fans is the low-key, almost hidden, countenance. Not bound to conventional streetscapes of the 19th century and before, Modernist homes aren't...

14 Crampton Cres, Rosanna VIC

14 Crampton Cres, Rosanna VIC

We've had a numerous folks send this no-nonsense, Greame Gun (by way of Merchant Builders) beaut, not least the owners themselves. We'd like to thank Johanna for contacting us and offering some gorgeous insight of Melbourne now long past; "This example of...

1 Hartley St, Cowes VIC

1 Hartley St, Cowes VIC

With winter in retreat thoughts turn to summer places past and future and doesn't get more Mid-Century beach shack than this. Indeed, we have stayed here before, in this very home, just not in this location - the ubiquity of certain project homes of a...

2 Ardlui Dve, Newtown VIC

2 Ardlui Dve, Newtown VIC

The last time we visited Geelong's wild architecture experiment in concrete 'Loaf Houses' it was to showcase a little ripper down St Leonards way, today we go back to where it all began. A local landmark which caught every kids eye traversing the Newtown...

95 Moreing Rd, Attadale WA

95 Moreing Rd, Attadale WA

WA is not to be left behind in the spring fling and slams down a mind-spinning project home neat-as-you-please and just begging to be cherished the old fashioned way. So much to leave be, so many options to sympathetically extend or maybe add a little...

78 Duneba Dve, Westleigh NSW

78 Duneba Dve, Westleigh NSW

A fine Mint Slice. Deep mission beams outlining expanses of cream walls, an intelligently considered set of spaces and flow through, a purely late Mid-Century expression of the Australian lifestyle (that bar tho!), all in exquisite condition. The purists...

66A Molesworth St, Kew VIC

‘Vidovic House’ 14 Beauchamp St, Deakin ACT

‘Vidovic House’ 14 Beauchamp St, Deakin ACT

It must be the change in seasons for once again we spy a true masterwork of Modernist Australian domesticity, which we have listed before, on the market again for only the second time in its history. We simply cannot let such immaculate pedigree, the...

703 Stedman Cres, Albury NSW

703 Stedman Cres, Albury NSW

Fill your Sunday brekky with fantasies of Albury (now there is a sentence we never thought we'd publish). Hitting the listings with a bullet is this bona-fide ball-tearer. An architect designed*, untouched 1960s family home of a dynamic, Brady Bunch...

21 Ilya Ave, Bayview NSW

21 Ilya Ave, Bayview NSW

Ahh Sydney so many cons - radio jocks, traffic, property prices - and yet all it has to do is flash that winning vista and all is forgiven. Suffice to say on a global comparison the position and views here are right up there. But that's not why we're here,...

47 Astley St, Montmorency VIC

47 Astley St, Montmorency VIC

A more unassuming little home today, though nonetheless lovely and progressive for it's time (c.1962) it sits on huge bayside land and hence is at dire risk of being destroyed. We understand the owners desire to post it here to find someone with the bucks...

27 Giles St, Magill SA

27 Giles St, Magill SA

A hooley drooly wonder from over in SA with those alternating walls of brick, stone, windows and timber creating a marvellous, thoughtful yet deceptively simple home with, in classic Modernist style, a sophisticated nod to indoor/outdoor living, an aspect...

143 Lloyd St, East Bendigo VIC

143 Lloyd St, East Bendigo VIC

A total winner in regional Vic. Already super roomy with gorgeous sunlit spaces and a garden bursting with magical potential. Ideally we'd have none of that subdivision, although it seems in the case the house, its brilliant northern aspect and hopefully...

86 Redbank Rd, Packers Camp QLD

86 Redbank Rd, Packers Camp QLD

29 Esplanade, Sellicks Beach SA

When it comes to beachy locales the volcanic lushness of Oahu and the ancient, sunbaked Fluerieu Peninsula couldn't be be more distant, but that won't stop us donning our Hawaiian shirts, combing our moustaches and entering Magnum country right here on...

82 Hawken Dve, St Lucia QLD

82 Hawken Dve, St Lucia QLD

Another comearound of an absolutely spectacular home, one of Queensland's greats in fact, which we listed back in 2015. We waxed very lyrical about this 1962 residence from architect Stephen Trotter back then and suffice to say it's a joy to see it well...

11 Pelissier St, Yea VIC

11 Pelissier St, Yea VIC

All our listings in the wings are pipped again by this regional ripper (thanks to Alistair at Secret Design Studio for scouting it). With not a lot altered in its (we're guessing) 40 years** (the beams have gone from black to white but that's about it )...

3/12 Edmondson St ‘Campbell Housing Apartments’, Campbell ACT

3/12 Edmondson St ‘Campbell Housing Apartments’, Campbell ACT

For those freezing in the winter chill we can assure you that light and warmth is on it's way and by the end of this very week, you'll be feeling it. To tide you over, have a gander at this impeccably spring-light, roomy residence in Seidler's renowned...

1955 Pittwater Rd, Bayview NSW

1955 Pittwater Rd, Bayview NSW

Like so many reclusive dames, this once life and location of the party now sits moldering away amid the birdsong and breeze, silent as a stone as the beamers and 4WDs coast past. A capsule of swingin' times now superseded by other residences nearby of...

10 Boronia Ave, Geraldton WA

10 Boronia Ave, Geraldton WA

Always seeking a regional bit of joy and knowing the heartache the Woodlands demolition post caused the other day we were excited to get this beauty online only to discover that, in the unfathomable enormity that is our western coastline, we've posted this...

23 Keith Rd, Blackwood SA

23 Keith Rd, Blackwood SA

Too many listings are flooding in for us to handle and we're showing the cream of the country right now. So back we travel to Adelaide and this wonderful architect (John Hipper) designed residence from 1964. Resplendent with fine internal timber framing,...

290B Eastern Valley Way, Middle Cove NSW

290B Eastern Valley Way, Middle Cove NSW

Women squeal. Men swoon.The MCM geeks knowingly nod their heads. What a retro-fabulous 1960 stunner! Naturally it is being marketed for its 'position' but we refuse to let that dampen our spirits today, not when faced with such unmolested gorgeousness and...

25 Seaview Rd, Lynton SA

25 Seaview Rd, Lynton SA

Many thanks to The Local Modernist who always keeps an eagle-eye on their home turf and has unearthed this ripper just come to market; a 1959 residence from architect Dr Andrew Benko. In the grand Australian Modern tradition Benko originally boated over...

5 Belvedere, Kew VIC

5 Belvedere, Kew VIC

Existing on the edge of what we'd deem mid-century, this home demands to be listed for its magical warmth of design, timber and breathtaking walls of glass allowing the supreme (and rare) metro bushland of Studley Park to take centre stage. Our...

47 Hillside Gve, Airport West VIC

47 Hillside Gve, Airport West VIC

With thanks to Brad for not only locating this little gem in a more under-the-radar suburb, but also noting it's project home origins - having the same floor plan as recent a Eltham listing. Just proving once more the footprint of beautiful and...

23 Ormley St, Kings Meadows TAS

23 Ormley St, Kings Meadows TAS

One out of the box sure to tickle to fancy of those who enjoy the more eclectic and/or industrial Modernist side and ideal for those who dig a project. Though looking a little rusty on the outside (nothing a lick of paint can't fix) inside is a rather...

St Georges, SA

St Georges, SA

No address, no internal photos, barely a blurb (though there is at least a little MCM nod in there) yet a price tag 3 times more than what we usually find in the bargain lands of Adelaide. We're guessing a quickie sale on the cheap, though land size isn't...

10 Hemmant St, O’Connor ACT

10 Hemmant St, O’Connor ACT

Like so many listings, this one sat in the wings until it was snapped up from under our noses. Sold 2 days ago, we still wanted to post this super solid retro baby, if only for the casual eye-lolly. Let's hope stands straight and proud for another 50...

45 Eastment St, Bardon QLD

45 Eastment St, Bardon QLD

Some of you may have trouble seeing it behind the worn out paint and sun bleached stone, but this has an implicit elegance that is so attractive to us we cannot stop looking at it. A lightness its form as it sits beautifully upon this sloping block, and we...

4 Colorado Dve, Glenalta SA

4 Colorado Dve, Glenalta SA

A lot to love out front and pool party out the back with some blanked out interiors in between, though its lovely bones show through and a ripper fireplace remains also. No doubt the perfect pick up for a first home buyer (guessing the price range here)....

95 Mather Rd, Mount Eliza VIC

95 Mather Rd, Mount Eliza VIC

Another result of hard toil by a dedicated owner with drool-worthy results. It's been a while since we've showcased some mount Eliza magic, but we can always rely on that particular peninsula pinnacle to never fail in delivering the most sublime spreads in...
