This 1971 townhouse, the largest in a quartet designed by the notable Australian Modernist Charles Duncan (not to be confused with Kenneth Charles Duncan) may look familiar. The honesty of earthy materials and low slung, horizontal line belies the creator’s Lloyd Wright influence was also apparent in another home by Duncan sold last year (which we neglected to post up ourselves tsk tsk). Unlike that large house in the outer east hills, this one sits in a primo city spot and is a true representation of later wave MCM homes a private oasis of warmth, comfort and light. Well loved and meticulously presented by it’s current owners it now seeks a new custodian who really just needs to move in, kick back and enjoy it’s beautiful spaces. Extra props for the bedroom bulkhead lighting – an increasingly rare, yet superb interior element and just one of many to be seen here.
