23 Buchan Ave, Wangaratta VIC

Despite the whatever photos, this rural agent does a bang up job of selling what we have here 'interesting' indeed! A formal Modernist design and concrete block construction, plopped into the dust of country Victoria. Take it from us it's these in...

23 Garfield Street, Klemzig SA

Adelaide continues to hurl MCM treasures at our heads apace, with this estate trustees sale no ordinary real estate clearing. In fact this beauty is right up there in its design, almost touching on a little FLW 1930s glamour in the fortress-like detailing...

‘Penjonan’ 1405 Maitland Vale Rd, Hillsborough NSW

For those whose MCM fantasies inhabit the rare but not impossible dreamscape of pastoral gentility and all the fob chains, checked shirts and R.M. Williams that entails - cast your eye over this beauty. Though so much of the rural Australia is fighting a...

It is with trepidation we post this for such an incredible, delicate, some might say - virgin - MCM home pared back to purity of design and materials, primarily light timber and that classic Adelaide stonework, deserves only the most controlled and...

39-45 Wills St, Kew VIC

‘Booth House’ 59 Oban Rd, City Beach WA

Though, to our minds, not exuding either the early, simple elegance of his 1960s projects, nor the wild, dynastic richness of some later landmarks this 1970's commission by Iwan Iwanoff (extended by the man again in 1973) is still acceptable with its...

23 Morland Ave, Stonyfell SA

‘Simpson House’ 13 Alwyn St, Croydon VIC

Maybe the market is cooling or perhaps this is a locally perceived no-go zone (friends, it's Croydon, let us not split undue hairs here)? In any case this striking Mid-Century ripper with bedrooms and yard to spare seems like a bit of a bargain. We've left...

19 Clarence Ave, Klemzig SA

139 Gympie Tce, Noosaville QLD

One image conveys 1000 words and illustrates the course of our built heritage past, present and future. It is inevitable that this lil' darling, in the centre of a nationally recognised, prestige holiday spot, will not be with us much longer. Let us simply...

1B Angle Rd, Deepdene VIC

Back to some clean right angles and very early 70s (we're guessing) panache now with this Lewis Coote Homes home. Possessing enough eastern suburbs blanc inside to attract the norm-cores while retaining a pure Modern profile with its feature pool, gorgeous...
