46 Kooloora Ave, Freshwater NSW

We suppose when asked to imagine Australian Mid-Century Modernism, a passively appreciative eye from the Northern Hemisphere would conjure up this listing. So insanely Northern Beaches bronzed aussie it’s basically INXS’s first album in real estate form and (ooh my!) the absolute essence of coastal breezy days and carefree nights already so just imagine what a little sympathetic touch up here and there could achieve (we’d suggest work on the front garden for starters). Claiming 140 years of possession by one family indicates two owners to this particular spot in all of human history – once again a simple reminder of what a young and gorgeous yet ancient place we inhabit. Lets not spoil such a magical union of land and home with some kind of ill-conceived knock down please, we beg of you.

27 Wyuna Ave, Freshwater NSW

The true absurdity of the inflated real estate market in all its glory. Though a handsome home with super orientation and wonderful Mid-Century elements to go berserk with, it is beyond troubling that it would fetch 1.5 million dollars. Where are we? Hong Kong? Manhattan? Oh no, just a suburban home on Sydney’s northern beaches. I mean really, who the hell do we think we are?
