Nestled within the Walter Burley Griffin devised ‘Glenard Estate’ and just down the road from this Charles Duncan beauty we listed last year sits a similarly eye-popping residence. Though this one, a 1970s creation by architect Nicholas Griffin, is in such remarkable condition with the non-apologetic splendor of its era on full show (check that kitchen and bathroom and you too will drop to your knees and believe) that it commands attention like no other. Such wonderful conceptional fusion of thoughtful design with the organic crunch of Australian indigenous Modernism familiar also to our legendary Sydney Schoolers, and revered local architects like Graeme Gun etc is veritable catnip to those of us seeking a physical touchstone of intelligence, nature and warmth in this, our ever-accelerating, mixed-up world.
