An earlier Modernist home from the similarly early hand of notable Canberra based architect William(Bill) Batt. Whilst finalising his qualifications with an internship at the South Australian Housing Trust in 1953, the soon to be architect was commissioned to build a family home by a young Mrs Carter (who had been forced from the same workplace due to her recent marriage – boo!). The result is this barely changed beauty resplendent with stunning retro details and bespoke furniture which, at time of completion, attracted its share onlookers and photo-takers, so unusual and progressive a design for the times it was. 65 years on and Mrs Carter’s time to sell up is now, the family would dearly love to pass this home to another owner to be cherished as it has been for already one lifetime, so let’s see if we can help them in this quest.
