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 some sophisticated European panache to the inner leafy streets. Internally the spaces were created for generational, long-term home-making with this very apartment testament to that: the vendor’s grandfather having purchased at time of build, his mother raised there and now first time up for sale. Though obviously having undergone a contemporary white out (a burl on the Googs suggest any number of wild, private renovations going on in this building over the years – sorry Harry) it’s still heartening to see the some of the joinery and fittings remain and of course you can’t ever erase the light-filled floorplan.
