8 Simpson Dve, Mount Waverley VIC

8 Simpson Dve, Mount Waverley VIC

A suburban delight in cream brick, timber detail, cork flooring and extended formation of perky skillion roof. Naturally for the area it exists on the sharp edge of 'development' danger though in such beautiful original condition and magnificent retro...

22 Colchester Dve, Doncaster East VIC

22 Colchester Dve, Doncaster East VIC

There is no pollyanna pretenses here, this home is not long for our world. And though it lends itself to a magnificent renovation, keeping much of the original charm and classic features (pool, raked ceilings, freestanding fireplace, layout), we are not...

1270 Bridgewater Lakes Rd, Cashmore VIC

1270 Bridgewater Lakes Rd, Cashmore VIC

In a grassy-plained, Victorian outpost closer to South Australia than Melbourne, someone with great pragmatism and sharp design eye built this wonderfully Modernist house for the local airport(strip?) manager. Now sitting empty it remains a testament to...

64 Gascoyne St, Kings Meadows TAS

64 Gascoyne St, Kings Meadows TAS

Reading through the agents blurb we're not too sure if this was the work of Thomas Tandy, or rather a local example comparable to his architecture, which is a roundabout way of saying this is an elegant slice of Mid-Century Modernist domesticity in the...

5 Summit Cres, Ringwood North VIC

5 Summit Cres, Ringwood North VIC

Sitting at the other end of the time-scale which we may invoke for Mid-Century and Modernist homes, though still in the same suburb as yesterday's lovely timber residence, is this double story home of a deep 1970s aesthetic with unadorned materials such as...

649 Ringwood-Warrandyte Rd, Ringwood North VIC

649 Ringwood-Warrandyte Rd, Ringwood North VIC

We start this week with two variations of our Modernist Australian style spread in the same suburb. Firstly this pretty, timber-clad Mid-Century home with retro-jaunty lines just aching for a little love. Sitting on over an acre in the development belt...

13 Hyland Ave, Darlington SA

13 Hyland Ave, Darlington SA

If that trapazoid pool isn't just calling for a fling (Hyland or otherwise) then we'll go he. The rest is pretty promising too, with the obligatory South Australian price point joy. 

17 McCann Cres, Lenah Valley TAS

17 McCann Cres, Lenah Valley TAS

Ain't nothing quite like a straight-as, minty condish Lenah Valley lovely to brighten us up for the winter weekend. Lean into some rest and kick back with this one.

48 Trevallyan Dve, Daisy Hill QLD

48 Trevallyan Dve, Daisy Hill QLD

Last sold in '72 we're guessing this one was built a smidge before then and though looking a little tired now could be a sensation with the bare bones (and pool) to re-imagine it into a Mid-Century beauty, keeping that unreal concrete brick and timber...

66 Broadway, Dunolly VIC

66 Broadway, Dunolly VIC

Running with yesterday's listing of an incredible church sell-off, here today we see a successful conversion of a similar public building. Though aesthetically it's a bit 80s/90s for us there is no denying the joy of the retained original features integral...

1494-1496 North Rd, Clayton VIC

1494-1496 North Rd, Clayton VIC

According to Wiki the foundation of the religion of Christian Science is "a radical form of philosophical idealism, believing that reality is purely spiritual and the material world an illusion" Well, for a people who don't defer to the material...

11A Timber Ridge, ‘Winter Park Estate’ Doncaster VIC

11A Timber Ridge, ‘Winter Park Estate’ Doncaster VIC

To our minds, one particular vision of Australian Modernism really comes into its own in these winter months, when the sun is low (and if in southern states, the chill and drear settles in for a stay) and that is the organic, early 70s, Sydney school...

‘Ricard House’ 2 Annetta Ct, Wheelers Hill, Vic

‘Ricard House’ 2 Annetta Ct, Wheelers Hill, Vic

Looking past the 1990s slathering of franked-credit mint, daytime-tellie grey you can get the sense that this is not only a 1960s Modernist design but an incredibly intelligent and well-conceived one at that. Northern orientation, flat roofline, easy flow...

25 Moses Street, Windsor NSW

25 Moses Street, Windsor NSW

Essentially a clean slate home with a solid and simple MCM tract-house design, pop-fun features and a garden/ interior waiting for an inspired hand (we're breaking with the agent here on these mirrored cupboards). Any which way you wanna go, here is a...

13 Frank St, Para Hills SA

13 Frank St, Para Hills SA

With similar style homes of a comparable condition in this 'burg selling for only the high 200s, one wonders what alternative universe is gripping this state, sucking all into a vortex of supreme affordability. Let's not question it too deeply, instead let...

40 Bambara Cres, Beecroft NSW

40 Bambara Cres, Beecroft NSW

A MCM dreamboat today. The perfect combo of 1960s set plan chic - reportedly a Nino Sidney 'Sundowner' project design - with the size, amenity, landscaping and extras (pool!) our contemporary souls desire. This darling residence unchanged and unsold for...

10/7 Denbigh Road, Armadale VIC

10/7 Denbigh Road, Armadale VIC

Anyone who has resided in a place of like construction materials to this one can confirm the cold exterior vibes emanating from these buildings belie the actual warmth and insulated cosy within. The interior photos here however go a good way in depicting...

8 Ocean View Ave, Merimbula NSW

Suffering from early onset Seasonal Affective Disorder? Looking for that perfect holiday/retirement/burn-the-city-to-the ground residence? Love pottering about in cotton day-frocks, maseur sandals and making believe life within the myth of 'simpler times'...

62 Hillcrest Dve, Eden Hills SA

62 Hillcrest Dve, Eden Hills SA

The market might be slowing but it's not backwards (just yet anyways) and tonight we inflict yet another cut of 1000 to our eastern seaboard souls in the form of this off the charts, 1960s ripper of Nino-Sydney-rectangular- double-storey profile, timber...

8 Hillside Dve, Campbelltown SA

8 Hillside Dve, Campbelltown SA

A fairly modest, suburban home reveals itself to possess wonderful lines and a steadfast progressive design directly from the 1960s. Fereday Homes is a new one for us and a burl on the 'Googs isn't giving it up - so who of you knows the score? We'd imagine...

58 Mayfair St, Mount Claremont WA

58 Mayfair St, Mount Claremont WA

A rather astounding find in WA. An early (for Australia) and most certainly architect conceived foray into Modernist theory of design and construction. With a boldly experimental construction on a large sloped site featuring double story walls of glazing...

5/1 Percy St, Devonport TAS

5/1 Percy St, Devonport TAS

To those cynics out there who claim that this 'fad' of Mid-Century Modernist design is only for the wealthy, who deride it as a cycling 'trend' for bored housewives-cum-influencers or snooty architecture nerds with effortless incomes - we say pooh pooh! In...

30 Eden Ave, Bellevue Heights SA

30 Eden Ave, Bellevue Heights SA

34 Harlen Rd, Salisbury QLD

34 Harlen Rd, Salisbury QLD

From the land of the Queen and on this ceremonial weekend birthday, we present a ground-up, sleeves-up renovation rescue calling for grit, cash and vision. A hybrid of Mid-Century and Queenslander traits where the enclosed sleepout with louvered windows...

6 Perseverance Rd, Tea Tree Gully SA

6 Perseverance Rd, Tea Tree Gully SA

Not being locals we suspect that the delightful sounding Tea Tree Gully is perhaps a little less desirable than certain other locales in Adelaide, reflected in the price tag of this lovely Modern (c.1963) residence. Constructed in solid brick, expanses of...

‘Bailey House’ 115 Killeaton St, St Ives NSW

‘Bailey House’ 115 Killeaton St, St Ives NSW

Two certainties are apparent here:This home is one of magical Mid-Century Modern expression, even if we only glance at 2 images. That streetface alone; a skillion roofed, geometric configuration of textures -  brick, stone, windows, and panel, is enough to...

‘Frank House’ 5 Patula Place, Menora WA

‘Frank House’ 5 Patula Place, Menora WA

Almost exactly 2 years ago we listed this Iwanoff beauty and here we go again because we'd never shirk the opportunity to show it off for those who may have missed it the first time. Very nicely refurbed and impeccably furnished it reaffirms the...

81 Verdon St, Warrnambool VIC

81 Verdon St, Warrnambool VIC

Ah 1960s Warnambool. A land of Tag Walter designed wonders, where pleasantries were exchanged over a hot pot of tea, a choice of neenish or maids of honour tarts and all repression was dutifully swallowed and pasted over with brittle smiles. One can only...

‘Jacobs House’ 36 Cleveland St, Wahroonga NSW

‘Jacobs House’ 36 Cleveland St, Wahroonga NSW

A damn fine second Sydney School example now, an offering from one of the headmasters therof  - a 1963 Russell Jack designed, award winning home in near mint condish, which (from all feet on-ground reports) is sooooo extra-extra, more than the newer sale...

44 Kitchener St, St Ives NSW

44 Kitchener St, St Ives NSW

Sunday school time, Sydney School to be exact, and hold onto your yoga mats kids because this one is a pure oasis of nature-centred design (though the architect and year of build are not yet confirmed) perched within a bushland eden. There is a lot to ooh...

‘Funston House’ 34 Hardinge St, Beaumaris VIC

‘Funston House’ 34 Hardinge St, Beaumaris VIC

The air in this one is thick with memories, scents and the spirit of original Beaumaris bohemia. Bouncing off the curtains, beamed ceiling and wildly angular spaces one can almost hear the late night froth and thrash of ideas, barefoot guests, wine being...

16 Gayer Ave, Wangaratta VIC

16 Gayer Ave, Wangaratta VIC

Many of you were enthralled by 'Clayton House' in Melbourne a few days ago; its smooth, fuss-free expanses of brick, timber ceilings and walls of windows exuding a calm and considered set of Modernist spaces in which to reside. Well, for a lot less cash...

9/34 ‘Kinkabool’ Hanlan St, Surfers Paradise QLD

9/34 ‘Kinkabool’ Hanlan St, Surfers Paradise QLD

A listing history lesson today detailing the colourful yet little known Post-War development of Surfers Paradise as primo holiday destination and Googie-motel wonderland for a brief shining moment before a new slew of 'developers' saw fit to rid itself of...

‘Clayton House’ 11 Jeffery St, Blackburn VIC

‘Clayton House’ 11 Jeffery St, Blackburn VIC

Though falling out of our self-imposed boundary for Mid-Century (c.1984), it is clear this commission for the Clayton family by architect David Edelman (recently departed - vale) carries with it the spirit of some of the best MCM homes we can cite in this...

34 Kingsall Rd, Attadale WA

34 Kingsall Rd, Attadale WA

Such a spark of joy alights our belly when we see a classic, though rundown, architecturally designed residence accompanied by encouragement from the agent to look up The Thunderbirds as a cultural anchor - especially in Perth of all places - yay! That...

17 Somerset Dve, Dandenong North VIC

17 Somerset Dve, Dandenong North VIC

1 Balfour Rd, Austinmer NSW

That jaunty, buttery street face, complete with sweeping entry walk beckons all those who wistfully aspire to a suburban dreamscape. Where the searingly acute beauty of the Australian beach hamlet is entwined with 60s shapes, the lush gardens and worship...
