Hard to be objective; architecture and any form of cultural interest is so objective and it's also hard to assess such design that was done decades ago to what we live with today. Personally didn't like the design or spacial context but understand it was...More

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

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.
