Thanks again to Alex Wood for flagging up another gem, this 1960s five-bedroom modernist property in Vaucluse, New South Wales, Australia, said to be the work of award winning architects Allen Jack and Cottier.
The house is pretty much a museum to the era, with the exposed brick, quarry tiled floors, wood panels and built-in furnishings all surviving intact through the decades. Someone has taken a lot of care of this place – and for that, we should all be grateful.
If the midcentury modernist style isn’t enough, there’s also an exclusive harbour side location, with the house a ‘stroll’ to Vaucluse Bay and Nielsen Park beach.
The space is said to be versatile, but right now includes a formal living room with walled garden, family room with alfresco court garden and kitchen on the round floor. Upstairs is a living room with balcony, master wing with sitting room / guest room and study area and four further bedrooms, Outside you’ll find a double garage with internal access and additional off street parking, along with some garden space.
Pricing is a little vague, as the house is up for auction. Contact the agent if you have a serious interest for a guide price, with the auction on 30th October 2014.
