PETTIT + SEVITT | TWO STOREY J with alts + adds by Anne Colville Architects.


“Undoubtedly the most famous of all the project builders of the 1960’s and 1970’s was Pettit + Sevitt. Even within the architectural profession it has achieved legendary status”

- Designer Suburbs | Architects and Affordable Homes in Australia

The Pettit + Sevitt Two Storey J House in Cheltenham represents the very best of mid-century modern design for modern family living today.


KILLARA, NSW, Australia

Architect: Sydney Ancher

Maytone Avenue, Killara is a true mid-century modern enclave. In 1945 Ancher won the Sulman Award for his own house, Poyntzfield. It too was located in Maytone Avenue.

This enclave of modern case study houses is significant as a demonstration of how modern International Style architecture in Australia was adapted and designed using the capacities of local post-war construction.

2 Maytone Avenue was photographed by Max Dupain and you can view his architectural photography here.

In selecting houses for Mid-Century Real Estate we preference architectural photography and copy that supports provenance. We are less thrilled to read about potential development opportunities. Although Natalie holds a current real estate license in the state of NSW she prefers spending her days at The Mid-Century Store.

We believe in and engage in respectful editorial.
