Hold the phone! An awe-inspiring, chest-bursting residence from the hand of notable, Hungarian emigre architect Frank Kolos (just the fellow to be celebrated with his colleagues in the recent exhibition from the Sydney Museum ‘The Moderns’) has popped up for sale. And could there be a greater testament to the ideas and execution on Mid-Century Modern design than this? Around 60 years old and as fresh, attractive and responsive to today’s needs as any contemporary build going on (and, lets face it a hellava lot more beautiful than most). How many other examples in the field of design – appliances, cars, clothing or tech could stand up to that comparison. Yep, not many. Of course another plus with a 60 year old home is the 60 year old garden to go with it – that stunning sweep of a drive leading us up to this beauty, nestled amid towering trees. We dare anyone to look at this a not see it as a work of art, and we will be questioning mankind en masse should it not be standing this time next year – Sydneysiders, a sure one for heritage protection no?
