Designed in 1975 by modernist architecture partnership H. Ruskin Rowe & Elmes, the incredible double brick late modernist home is the ultimate party house, with a panoramic entertaining wing and a covered patio which wraps around almost the whole house! The kitchen sits at the centre of the home, in order to service both formal and informal dining spaces, and tucked away via a spiral staircase, the turret-like second floor contains just one room: a bedroom slash office space, whose in-built gingham (!) lounge looks out over the treetops.

Though the refined modernist details throughout the rest of the house deserve attention (we’re looking at you, pink Italian marble lining the diva-esque master bathroom), who could draw their eyes away from the spectacular lounge?! The psychedelic fitted sofa suite is built into the wall, forming a semi-circular arrangement around the statement gas fireplace. A suspended copper hood is the centrepiece of this space – we can just imagine the retro fondue parties this place may once have hosted…  ’70s living at its best!

5 Fords Road is for sale through McGrath Thirroul. See the full listing here.
