Location: Bronte, Australia
Price: Upon Request

Keeping in line with the "party in the back" strategy adopted by some very cool Australian homes, this one in the Sydney beachside suburb of Bronte also has a surprise. Done up by Aussie architect Mary Ellen Hudson, the house is all Federation Era on the front and what seems like full-on muscular Brazilian modernism on the back. The inside, the work of local interior designer Briony Fitzgerald, contains a striking mix of concrete, glass, copper, and wood, plus luxe details like custom lighting by Tom Dixon.

The five-bedroom residence can also hang with the best of masterful indoor-outdoor designs. The airy back of the house, which includes a very en vogue giant pivoting glass door, opens up to gardens conceived by noted Aussie landscape designer William Dangar. The 8,600-square-foot manse with heated pool in tow is hitting the auction block next month. How much should it go for?
