I'm stalking an architect designed home clinging to the hillside in the Sydney suburb of Bronte. The Marsh Cashman Koolloos design uses a raw palette of off form concrete, form ply, plate steel and raw recycled hardwood with a play between sinuous curves and solid blocks. Light pours in through clerestory windows making the roof appear to float above the concrete walls. Modern living on a narrow sloping block and only minutes to the beach.

I'm stalking a classic 60s pad in Melbourne's salubrious suburb of Toorak but it's a case of déjà vu. I stalked this home 2 years ago in a leftovers post. As the building is being sold as a "knock it down and build an architect designed 5 bedroom, pool and 3 car upgrade" you can see that nothing has changed to the shell. One thing that has is the styling. The current incarnation is all scandi modern while in its previous life it was mid century minimal. Which do you prefer? I know that I'd be happy with either. OK, OK I like the scandi better but that's not the point. I think I like the old 60s groove better than any Toorak McMansion that would replace it.

Still stalking but in an urban setting. Styill picky. Still finding leftovers. Not quite right, love the bones but ditch the furniture, bad photos, I need more photos please! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". From warehouses and lofts to extensions to old houses and mansions. Even a house with a devil's tail. Strange. Very strange. Click on the photos to go to the listings. All via Domain.
