Snelling’s Pittwater palace on the market again

Opening spread of Jonathan Chancellor's article on luxury Pittwater residences now for sale, all images show Snelling's Little house.

Douglas Snelling's Arthur F. Little residence (Yoorami), built during the mid-1960s on a large Pittwater harbourfront property at 3 Riverview Road, Clareville, is being offered for sale. It has been promoted in a colour feature about Pittwater's luxury residences, published in the 'Mansion' property supplement of The Australian newspaper, 27-29 October 2017.

Jonathan Chancellor, The Australian's veteran property reporter, echoed claims published on this website by describing the Little house as 'Tiki-style' and 'a vast home designed by Douglas Snelling, one of the most accomplished interpreters of California modern design'. His article is here.

The Little house remains one of Snelling's best preserved buildings. Its current owners expect to sell for around $A13 million, following earlier sales of $2 million in 1993 and $9.65 million in 2006.
