Oh me oh my! Our listings from Tassie seem to be getting exponentially better and this is a heart-racing standout. Of course it comes from no other than Ray Heffernan, an architect who is fast becoming our MCM go-to for Tasmania in the same pattern as Seidler for Sydney and Boyd for Melbourne. We have listed  a few of his works before, each in their way incorporating his unfussy yet marvellous trademarks; a cascading form of beams and horizontal textures, panes of glass, brick dividers, paving and a specifically natural-world vernacular. This particular home with the fantastic moniker of ‘Tripptree House'(1962) maintains it all, a highpoint Heffernan’s output, and is nationally recognised as a significant addition to Australian Modernist story.  That outrageous vista and the lounge room taking it in but also allowing for northern sun to flood the other side – it’s design like this which separates the surface from the substance – taking comfortable living back to it’s elemental best – natural light, warmth, breezes and cooling. If moving to Tasmania was on the cards, this would be the ace to confirm it.
