One part dynamic Queenslander, one part steamy, Rone dreamscape and all parts wonderful is this fixer-upper we missed in the recent inflow (under contract guys – sorry). Still, we wanted to post it as an example of what remains out there; houses of great...

14 Marie Way, Kalamunda WA

14 Marie Way, Kalamunda WA

We're not privy to the story on this residence but suffice to say it's been sitting quietly on our backburner, waiting to be posted for at least 8 months. Why it hasn't been snapped up is not for us to say, but what we will say is that if this c.1967...

51 Comer St, Brighton East VIC

51 Comer St, Brighton East VIC

4 Prowse Ave, Balwyn VIC

4 Prowse Ave, Balwyn VIC

13 Valley Rd, Highbury SA

13 Valley Rd, Highbury SA

We’ve finally listed this bad boy, after sitting around for ages, because we simply couldn’t forget the daring-do individualism tucked within this solid, low-slung Mid-Century design. Kidney-shaped lighting feature, internal planter, split levels and neato...

‘Torrens Townhouses’ 2C / 3 Davies Place, Torrens ACT

32 Warringah Cres, Eltham VIC

32 Warringah Cres, Eltham VIC

The wild permutations of this swirling world are creating schisms in the fabric of our reality. One could easily slip through a finely worn section, back to 1967 and make a home here - a textbook example of a Graeme Gunn designed Merchant Builder's home...

10 James Rd, Belair SA

10 James Rd, Belair SA

‘Zimmerman House’ 116 Bulleen Rd, Balwyn North VIC

After that delectable European fare yesterday, let's go back to the cake shop for another hit. This one in what we'd also deem a hotspot of MMMM - AKA postwar, emigre, domestic architecture, with the name here giving it away off the bat. 'Zimmerman House'...

4/16A Richardson Ave, Claremont WA

4/16A Richardson Ave, Claremont WA

There’s something delightfully palate-cleansing (after such recently rich fare), to look over this elegant, original 1950s (?) apartment. This is not your usual 60s unit block cutie-pie either- but a very considered design, arrangement of space, walls and...

33 Dickasons Rd, Heathmont VIC

33 Dickasons Rd, Heathmont VIC

The geographical impossibility of us snapping up this home, resplendent with such glorious details, design and condition makes us quietly weep. Dovetailing with his dismay is the sales pitch which limply suggests some kind of refurb 'to taste' (now what...

20 Beach Rd, Legana TAS

20 Beach Rd, Legana TAS

62 Riviera Ave, Avalon Beach NSW

62 Riviera Ave, Avalon Beach NSW

The one thing which separates this fixer-upper of the Mid-Century Modernist genus (and what a specific genus it is - a completely unsullied Beachcomber!) is the sales spiel. Any other day we'd see the agent ignoring the history, architectural significance,...

5 Homestead Cres, Skye SA

5 Homestead Cres, Skye SA

6 Banool Cres, City Beach, WA

Here's the score - we've been alerted to this, a slice of classic, Sydney Mid-Century Modern domesticity (architect as yet unknown**) - in grave danger. We hear/tell that the market audience for this property so far has consisted of self-styled renovators...
