Iconic Sydney architect Harry Seidler designed this modest 50-sq-m house (1950) for his mother and father, Rose and Max. It’s a modernist gem, with free-flowing open spaces, retro colour schemes and hip furnishings. Every year the Historic Houses Trust holds a Fifties Fair (usually in August) on the grounds. The house is around 30km north of the city and a fair hike from the train station (approximately 40 minutes; around 3km) − you’re better off with your own wheels.
