A Darlinghurst offering, a former 1930s Printers Lane electricity substation, was passed in on a $3.5 million vendor bid when auctioned yesterday through William Manning at McGrath Double Bay.

With a facade likened to the ­Tardis from the Dr Who television series, it had traded at $1.1 million in 2013 before its transformation into a three-level home on its 57sqm footprint by Tribe Studio.

It won the Greenway Award in the Australian Institute of Architects NSW Awards. 

Meanwhile, the home known in rarefied architectural circles as House Eadie (pictured below) by Tribe Studio has been listed for sale.

It is a modernised herit­age-listed Surry Hills 1890s workers’ cottage.

The six-month 2011 project was led by Hannah Tribe and Ricci Bloch.

The aim was a house that was at once toddler-friendly and also a great house for entertaining adults.

Set behind a wrought-iron picket fence, and under its Colorbond Surfmist roof, the 114sqm double-fronted home was bought for $770,000 in 2008 when dilapidated.

The price guide for the High Holburn St home is $1.85 million through Williams Phillips at BresicWhitney.

One architectural review suggested the house was “aggressively ­unpretentious”. But that doesn’t sound like an agent’s spiel.

The next Eadie House is set for Bundeena.
