‘It’s a joy to see it well looked after and ready to please another MCM fan.’ – Patricia Callan.

Here we have another back-on-the-market-come-around of an absolutely spectacular home, one of Queensland’s greats in fact, which we first came across back in 2015. We waxed very lyrical about this 1962 residence back then and suffice to say it’s a joy to see it well looked after and ready to please another MCM fan – though we’d certainly take the agent’s advice and chuck in that pool.

The house was designed by acclaimed Queensland Modernist architect Stephen Trotter of Fulton Trotter and Partners (do not click here if you wish to spare yourself from the article of the outrageous demolition of their original office building in 2013).

And the home itself? Pass the brown paper bag – we must get some CO2! The light and windows. The radical bedroom/ensuite layout. The stunning timber ceiling and walls. The fireplace. That bulkhead lighting. The breeze blocks. The fat laminex. And is that an abstract tile mural behind the stove?

The original 1960s kitchen stands, and the panelling and Murano glass pendants throughout, which will surely light-up-some modernist lovers’ eyes!

View the listing here, and original MA article here.
