Tucked away in the suburbs in Carina, Queensland, this 1950’s-style home has just hit the market with a $1.3 million price tag.

The three-bedroom, one bathroom, single story abode was designed by futurist Architect Donald Spencer and Spencer Architects in 1966.

The listing describes the home's design as “remarkable” and “uncommon” that is ideal for the Queensland climate.

Interestingly, the home has a cactus garden in the front to welcome you to the home and a Japanese garden in the back to relax by the pool.

“A standout feature though must be the Japanese garden which has dedicated walkways through, that lead to an inground pool, sizable Hawaiian Tiki cabana and easy to manage fishpond all sitting nicely amongst manicured bonsai plantings and feature grasses,” the listing said.

The home still boasts its original mid-century light from Palm Springs California. The mailbox and house number were also originally sourced from Palm Springs.
