Overview
More
When completed in 1950, Rose Seidler House was ‘the most talked about house in Sydney’. Today, still surrounded by bushland with panoramic views of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, the house is one of the finest examples of mid 20th-century modern domestic architecture in Australia. Open Sundays only, we encourage visitors to explore the house on their own, with our friendly guides on hand to provide information or help if needed. Please note that due to the fragility of the interior, you will be asked to remove your shoes when entering the house so remember to wear your best socks!

Amazing house in an amazing setting. Absolutely awesome for any modernism or architecture nerds. But the historic houses trust, or SLM as they are called now (sounds like a STD...) just ruin with all their nonsense.

What aovely location and a cool designed house. A blend of industrial architecture with 50s and 60s styling inside. Bright colours juxtaposed against a more restrained palette. It is trip down memory lane if you are of a certain age. The setting is beautiful and...More

If you like clashing colours and really uncomfortable furniture, this is the place for you. It is a really historic house from the 1950's and gives you a good idea of the architecture of that time. The gardens were lovely but the house was very...More

This lovely home is located in a bushland site at 71 Clissold Road, Wahroonga. The architect, Harry Seidler, designed it for his parents, even before he had ever set foot in Australia. So some of the space in the house probably catches too much of...More

I am not generally architecturally inclined but I found the Rose Seidler house to be fascinating, beautiful and very interesting to learn about.

Famous home and easy to take it in just by a drive by. In fact that is what we have always done- a drive by. Well known and admired in the area.

This historic house is a stunning representation of a 1950s house. I have visited several times, especially during the wonderful yearly Fifties Fair. The architecture and interior design of Rose Seidler House are a joy to behold and every tiny feature has been faithfully preserved.

Such clever architecture. Hard to believe it was built in 1949 by Harry Seidler for his parents. Seidler designed every detail from the drop down ironing board to the artwork painted on the courtyard wall. So many of the features would sit comfortably in contemporary...More

On the road up towards Rose Seidler you will see regular homes, some old, some new 'MacMansions' etc but when you arrive at Rose Seidler, you are smacked in the teeth by the amazing design of this home. Built in the 50s for his mother,...More
