A tale of two houses

Still real estate stalking. It's an addiction I know. I just a busy body. I like to stick my nose into other people's homes. Today I have two. Both in Paddington, Sydney. The first a small terrace house rather uncluttered for the photo shoot. (Methinks perhaps professionally styled ... nothing wrong with that. It's all about selling houses.) The second a somewhat larger terrace with a faded, well lived in look. Definitely not professionally styled. Oh the clutter! But secretly it's the clutter that does it for me. Makes me want to pick up a dust cloth and explore. Love the kitchen and there is a little library room .... oh what a lovely little room. Links here and here while they last.

I think the one with all the books belongs to a lawyer! Nice dictionary collection!
I have bookshelf envy.

The rised benches for trees in the backyard are my favourites! I would like to do something similar, but it might not work here in very snowy Finland!

yes, those bookshelves do it for me- might actually be able to fit all our books in. But what I really love is the second bedroom with those 3 windows with little balconies. Sigh.

Hi, Love the pictures! The bedroom with the small balcony - Love it! Have a great day!

Great ideas, the color blue on the doors just inspire me to do the same on my house!!

Oh my word look at all the books - that one is my house for sure

I am seriously loving the new orleans-style balconies with the multitude of doors.. it is very special.

Both houses are super clean though... The second has very highly organized clutter. So I feel like some professionals have been at work in both places!

The second one with all the books is 35 Bent Street Paddington Sydney. Coming up for auction soon. Would be very nice indeed!

My goodness, I think I just went pin-crazy with the second home! I LOVE the clutter, looks very home-y and lived in. This makes me a tad depressed I don't have a cool 1.5mil to spend on a place like this :(

Good Lord both of these homes are stunning. I love the blue doors in the bedroom and those black bird cage looking chairs are fabulous. But the last photo with that eating area makes me swoon!

You said it Fifi. They're not exactly mansions, but either one of these houses is more than capable of giving any bigger house a run for its money.
