A taste of olde-worlde class through the lens of Mid-Century Australia. Located in a part of the world ever intriguing to us in its small but exquisite bounty of private, original compounds (check this one in neighboring Mount Pleasant which we never quite got over) Mount Ousley has held tight to this home for one family since it was designed* and built-in 1953! Those stately front gates and signage giving way to a sweeping drive upon approach to this incredible low-slung, blonde stone and breeze block featured abode with walls of glazing and a modest footprint ( 2 bedrooms is enough we certainly think!). In impossibly gorgeous condition we still fear that all of this still may not be quite ‘enough’ and that it sits at a crossroads in grave danger of molestation, or even demolition. Any captains of industry seeking to leave Sydders for a more genteel life of G&Ts on the croquet lawn? Rummy by the pool (yep- we think one could go nicely in the side there) and moolight bushwalks? This one has your (possibly hyphenated) name simply all over it.

*Architect, as yet, unknown.
