Many thanks to The Local Modernist who always keeps an eagle-eye on their home turf and has unearthed this ripper just come to market; a 1959 residence from architect Dr Andrew Benko. In the grand Australian Modern tradition Benko originally boated over from Hungary and from all accounts was a FLW devotee. This sensational and very intact house which addresses the sloping bushland block with a series of of (now overgrown) terraced garden and internal levels is just crying out for some sympathy, love and care, to ensure the integrity of those original materials, landscape remain intact, whilst bringing them all into a life renewed. Certainly worth a pilgrimage Adelaide folk.
