Mid-century in Moorooka

I feel as if my house stalking knows no bounds.

I don’t just do it for my own personal satisfaction, I do it for you too because I  know all of you are keen and eager to see what else I have in store for the blog!  You’re my enablers!

So, it’s lucky that I have met some amazing people in the last year, who will cheerfully help feed our mutual addictions and love for homes.  When I was invited to view this stunning mid-century home by a friend who was house sitting for her brother, I jumped at the chance!  It sounds completely dodgy, but he knew we were going to be sticky-beaking around (I think!?).

Mid-century in Moorooka

Built around the 1960’s, the home was designed by Robin Spencer, a well known Brisbane architect who also designed the Chater Street home in Carina.

Like all mid-century designs, it’s sleek and stunning, full of light and interesting architectural features which somehow manage to be so sophisticated and understated at the same time.

I have a lot of love for this era and it is great to see the home is being cared for with much of it in original condition.  The owners have great taste in furniture and artwork, giving the home a cosy feeling – and I think the timber helps with that too!

I took a few sneaky photos to share with you… enjoy!

The link this home has with it’s surroundings are outstanding.  The wide windows take in the green surrounds and a gorgeous outdoor area, complete with a round pool, is so stunning.

I have to apologise, it was a hot day when we visited and I was too busy drooling at the pool to get a decent photograph!  But, it is round and blue – amazing.

Would you love to house sit at this place?  Line up, take a number!
