Back in September 2015, we like to think that MA was one of the first alarm pushers who discovered this home on the market with seemingly no protections to stop it being completely destroyed if sold into the wrong hands (close to original Seidler, on huge land in leafy Sydney, it was looking shaky). Thankfully Harry Seidler is one architect in this country whose iconic work provokes loud calls for protection and historical cataloging (though with differing outcomes, depending on the councils and houses at hand). It seems the wheels of justice may have 360ed, this stunning home’s heritage protections in place and the vendors having achieved a beautiful compromise – phew! Now to be sold with 2 titles, perhaps this is the best outcome for this day and age; higher (well, than before) density living, with respect to the original, historic architecture. Win, win!
PS- We strongly suggest to click onto our 2015 listing of this property to see the divine Max Dupain images (c.1957) Polly Seidler kindly sent to us of this home post build – some serious inspiration right there.
