Actually spotted this by accident on the Collectic Vintage site. Glad I did too as this Hassell & Partners-designed midcentury-style property in Adelaide, South Australia is a real gem.
It looks more ’50s than 1970s, but the later date is what the agent is putting on it. The house was the work of Hassell & Partners in that decade, before being taken on by the current owners some time later. Those owners apparently found the house in near original condition, using the likes of the stone fireplaces and oak panelling as a basis for the midcentury-style renovation.
The end result is what you see here, a great example of a retro home that functions just as well as a modern family home. There’s around 312 sq. metres of living space, along with garages and basement space, sat on a plot covering 5,471sq. metres, which is primarily landscaped grounds. The design brings both outside and inside together perfectly, not least because of the expanse of full-height glazing.
That inside space offers four bedrooms (the master also has a walk-in wardrobe), three bathrooms and two living and dining ‘zones’. There’s also a study with built-in cabinets, along with a studio or games room plus a high end kitchen. The entire house is also said to be energy efficient.
The price estimate is between $1,750,000 – $1,900,000, which works out at around £967,000 – £1,050,000.
