Mid Century Tasmanian Home

There are so many interesting mid century homes throughout Tasmanian towns and cities, including this one.  I enjoy the wonderfully shaped fence and the formality of the home as well as the angled roof.


  1. It's gorgeous Thomas - love the front fence too. I often look at Tasmanian real estate for this very reason - there seems to be heaps of lovely mid-century homes for sale. Way more than there are here in the West anyway...

  2. Great photo! And very evocative of the era.

    The housing industry had to get a hurry on after 1950 because all the ex-soldiers were having children by then and because European migrants were actively being recruited into the nation. So I certainly understand why the houses had to be quickly built, minimally decorated, big enough for children and on large blocks of land. But I didn't like these houses then and I still don't now.
