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 homes. We visited on a very wet day so were fortunate to have the place... 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, Harry Seidler, well known architect who's style is up there with Frank Lloyd Wright, has... More

Loved the Retro feel of this house, went there a couple of years back and just loved it. The bushy surrounds also helps with the ambiance.

Had my classic Citroen 2CV Charleston with display of Citroens for the 50's themed open day. Harry Seidler was a great Citroen fan. A piece of art and a house in a bushland setting

This was the vision of the future back in the 50s. Wow. It's a time capsule. Locked in forever. Love it. Hate it. It's amazing. Do visit during the regular 50's fair and soak in the vib

I have visited this house on a couple of occasions and one day I would love to have something similar. The house is located in such a tranquil location that you never want to leave. There is a video to watch before you tour the house or you can watch it after. Harry Seidler was ahead of his time when... More

Really enjoyed my first visit to Rose Seidler House, designed by the late Harry Seidler for his parents, having a passing interest in Australian architecture and urban planning history, and unfulfilled intentions of visiting over many years. There was an introductory video playing downstairs and the guides upstairs were enthusiastic and informative. The building is well maintained and is a... More

The North Shore of Sydney offers a great collection of highly regarded Australian Architects' family homes - and the Rose Seidler House will not disappoint. The house is opened a few times a year, or by appointment for student groups. Good design doesn't date, and this home would be just as well placed in the environment if it had been... More

...to the years of my childhood. I love coming back to Rose Seidler House - I used to go on the open days like the 50s Fair, and sure, those are fun occasions - but to really appreciate the house and its atmosphere, I prefer to visit on other days when there are perhaps just a few others wandering through....
