5/1 Percy St, Devonport TAS

For Sale

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

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...

The Flip n’ Fail

Every so often we allow ourselves the indulgence of savaging the current state of Mid-Century homes and the obsession of mass-class renovation within this 'flip' market. While sellers' aspirations may now be forced to move down a gear (who ever knows the...

A Boyd night out

Ever wanted to pop into Boyd's legendary home in Walsh St? Perhaps wanted to say hi to us? Well tomorrow night you can do both as we venture into the weeds of 'Midcentury Modernism in a Post Ironic World' - the third instalment of the Boyd Foundation's...
