The house was one of three designed by Harry Seidler for his extended family in Wahroonga. Overlooking the bushland, it is located at the bottom of a road that winds downhill from the iconic Rose Seidler House. The house was built in 1951 for Edith and Marcus - Seidler's uncle.
Edith and Marcus' offspring inherited the house and invited Greg Holman, of Harry Seidler and Associates with renovations. The architects retained the original structure and modernised it with new wiring, plumbing and ceilings. Insulation was added to the original walls, roofs and floor resolving some minor impracticalities of the design. A new bay consisted of two bedrooms and amenities was added, linking it to the original building and creates a distinctive yet coherent juxtaposition.
