A high level of evasiveness has accompanied this listing which has been sitting on the market for a while. From the stated knowns: primo Castlecrag location and 60 years in the same hands plus a peek or two from some interested Modernist Australians the situation is quickly laid bare: this residence of very attractive brick and stone with very sophisticated lines for its age is most likely the work of a noted MCM architect and is absolutely in dire of attention. That said, we balk at the advice that it is ‘beyond economic repair’ (whatever that means) for if someone has the cash to buy on a clifftop in Castlecrag in the first instance and if someone has the cash to replace said original home with a banal statement in vulgar wealth accumulation (as if that’s some kind of a virtue), then we could also posit that someone else may indeed have the cash, creativity and integrity to swim against this insipid tide and perhaps give this home a sympathetic rebirth. Or is everyone in Sydney with money just a complete tosser?
