For Harry and Della Calthorpe a new Federal capital in the 1920s opened up a world of possibilities. And for Della in particular her newly built home at 24 Mugga Way would be the epitome of modernity.
With its separate kitchen, living and dining rooms and sparkling white bathroom, Calthorpes House was a home of the future. To furnish it Della wanted only the best.
She scoured catalogues from prestigious Sydney firm Beard Watson and Co to make her purchases, creating a style that is still evident in the house today.
