6 Banool Cres, City Beach, WA

6 Banool Cres, City Beach, WA

It's hard to work out which and what has been altered quite when (though there is mention of 1971, we can't be convinved those glass bricks appeared that early. However, it doesn't change the fact that this is a landmark party pad to rival any of the...

‘Orme House’ 15 Bluegum Cres, Frenchs Forest NSW

‘Orme House’ 15 Bluegum Cres, Frenchs Forest NSW

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...

2 Pam St, Beaumont SA

2 Pam St, Beaumont SA

Pam was up there as a most popular post-war, girls name. It became the common moniker of hippie chicks in the 60s, working mothers in the 80s and now Boomer grandmothers. Along with others of the era  - your Karens, Lindas, Barbaras, Carols and Sandras we...

‘Chowns House’ 40-46 Richmond Ave, St Ives NSW

‘Chowns House’ 40-46 Richmond Ave, St Ives NSW

Yet another unforeseen and breathtaking example of early, Post-War Australian Modern, this home has incredibly remained unmolested by anything or anyone for the last 60 years. We're going to assume the owner was a indie stalwart, a bush-seeker, a soul...

56 Marriott St, Coorparoo QLD

56 Marriott St, Coorparoo QLD

Causing a similar wave of nostalgia and glee one may feel when passed by a pristine mint -green Holden station wagon, this 1960s family rambler is cut from the same cultural cloth. Though pedestrian in its pitched tiled roof and relatively straight forward...

‘Holt House’ 16 Riviera Ave, Avalon Beach NSW

‘Holt House’ 16 Riviera Ave, Avalon Beach NSW

As the real estate riches continue to rain down from all corners of the country, we thought we'd start the week right with this sublime slice of Sydney School residential architecture. An (̶a̶s̶ ̶y̶e̶t̶ ̶u̶n̶n̶a̶m̶e̶d̶)̶  architect's own home built  c.1968...

‘Armstrong House’ 25 Grove St, Vermont VIC

‘Armstrong House’ 25 Grove St, Vermont VIC

Like those who fossick for gold, we know the range and the environmental factors which indicate a rich vein of that which we seek. In Australia, when looking at MCM residences, it is most promising to check the 'middle-ring' suburbs, those developed in the...

128 Lohr Ave, Inverloch VIC

128 Lohr Ave, Inverloch VIC

We love forays into the more experimental varieties of Modern architecture almost as much as we love a good Australian Mid-Century beach shack (they're design cousins really), so today we present a meeting of both. This soaring A-Frame house has an...

5 Valley Rd, Mount Waverley VIC

5 Valley Rd, Mount Waverley VIC

Though always optimistic, we didn't come down in the last shower and we know that a beautiful low-slung, MCM suburban home like this one sheltering and supplying a family with a lifetime of sunlit memories from that perfect northern orientation, hasn't got...

17 Smith Cres, Footscray VIC

17 Smith Cres, Footscray VIC

In a little Modern pocket of the otherwise Victorian-era suburb that is Footscray (check out number 8) indeed in perhaps in the most underrated street in the entire metro area, sits this home of a reportedly lovely couple, Don and Betty Watson, now for...

‘Symons House’ 14 Bonython Ave, Beaumont SA

‘Symons House’ 14 Bonython Ave, Beaumont SA

‘Welch House’ 6 Towri Close, St Ives NSW

‘Welch House’ 6 Towri Close, St Ives NSW

128 Weekes Rd, Moggill QLD

128 Weekes Rd, Moggill QLD

We've hit the Freaky Friday jackpot today with not only an incredible, architect designed, enormous Mid-Century Modernist, riverside residence dating from the late 1950s, but one which is in such a dilapidated state as to render itself a Sam Rami set...

‘Husted House’ 3 Keith Ct, Brighton VIC

‘Husted House’ 3 Keith Ct, Brighton VIC

We have checked with the experts and can confirm is no actual Saint Keith. But if there was, we just know he'd be the Patron Saint of Longevity, Survival and Resolute Good Times in the face of life's endless trials. So we offer today a petition of atheist...

48 Coasters Retreat, Coasters Retreat NSW

48 Coasters Retreat, Coasters Retreat NSW

For all the fish-in-a-barrell snidery directed at a certain subset of idle well-to-do women, with bottomless bank accounts, golden-haired children and 200k Insta followers* we'll actually be really disappointed if this doesn't fall into such hands. We...

59A Hale Road, Wembley Downs WA

59A Hale Road, Wembley Downs WA

This cutie-pie and deceased estate has just been snapped up and we suspect its days may be numbered. So if we cannot preserve that stunning fireplace (among other lovely Mid-Cenutry aspects) in reality, then the very least we can do it always keep it here...

‘Hertle House’ 25 Rodway Cres, Rangeville QLD

‘Hertle House’ 25 Rodway Cres, Rangeville QLD

We are learning new things every day here at MA, and today it's a name - Karl Hertle. Clearly a legend in this unlikely architectural spot of inland Queensland, Hertle is (was?) a builder from days when that meant something. Judging by this jawdropping...

28 Lucas St, Brighton East VIC

28 Lucas St, Brighton East VIC

For all the money, position and supposed savvy the bankrolled of Brighton assume, we sadly continue to spy example after godawful example of the tired trends and the repellent rebuilds in this suburb, often as prescribed by the most banal of the breed: the...

110 Alexander Cve, Dianella WA

110 Alexander Cve, Dianella WA

This is perhaps the most affordable home we've seen in Perth in a long time and what's more it's a sensational, untouched gem (we suspect 1960s project home) for a true Modernist Australian to get in there and make it their own. Beams, joinery, dividing...

140 Alastair St, Lota QLD

140 Alastair St, Lota QLD

Even the agent can see this one is special. For all the down-at-heel-felafel-in-hand-QLD-rental presentation, the ping of ambitious, progressive and stright up cool architecture strikes with immediacy for those with the eye for it. Thought the architect...

89 Pellatt St, Beaumaris VIC

89 Pellatt St, Beaumaris VIC

Seasoned campaigners may picture first wave 1940s-50s bohemia when they hear the word 'Beaumaris' and their versions of timber and fibro domestic experimenta, produced by intellectual, pre-tv nature kids, however even in the 1970s Beauie was still building...

6 Robinsville Cres, Thirroul NSW

6 Robinsville Cres, Thirroul NSW

Last time we were in Thirroul we were in raputures over Jennifer Cres. A year later it's Robins(ville) turn. A lovely, untouched gem of pure Mid-Century jaunt and vintage accoutrements (chenille bedspreads- where have you been!). This wonderful residence...

2 Overbury Drive, Clarence Park SA

2 Overbury Drive, Clarence Park SA

A classic 1960s family home, with so much Mid-Century pop and fizz - that flat-roof and breeze block carport is only the start -  though it looks to have had its original courtyard built in to make extra living space (we're guess it's a project plan of...

2 Cluden St, Holland Park West QLD

The party vibes spill over to the new week with this intriguing but no less sensational listing in Brisneyland. Presenting a bit shabby and in need of an inspired refurb, the clear architectural lines* of this marvelous residence is apparent from the front...

‘Tradewinds’ 5 Canadian Bay Rd, Mount Eliza VIC

‘Tradewinds’ 5 Canadian Bay Rd, Mount Eliza VIC

Like a world-weary dame, a showstopper in her youth, but spending many years subject to bad deals, bad managers and bad boyfriends this residence too shows the scars. Yet, also like the dame, it powerfully shines through with irresistible attraction and...

‘Cedar House’ 3 Clwydon Close, Belrose NSW

‘Cedar House’ 3 Clwydon Close, Belrose NSW

Another residence on the more paisley end of the spectrum today, this one with its cosy interiors and styling in total deference to its build year of 1969. Its post and beam construction, like so many other Mid-Century homes, depressingly can never be...

41 Blackbutt Avenue, Lugarno NSW

41 Blackbutt Avenue, Lugarno NSW

1 Hobart Street, Ringwood VIC

1 Hobart Street, Ringwood VIC

We steadfastly reject any suggestion of 'inspired renovation' (inspired by what? by whom?) let alone 'redevelopment' (get that S.T.C.A outta here!) for this is clearly a move-straight-in prospect. A cosy and cool residence, one of many versions from...

4 Lumeah Court, Darlington, WA
