Stalking on a saturday

A modest, narrow cottage all dolled up and extended. A new lease on life with clever low line windows to let in the light but allow privacy ... plus you get cool glimpses of legs walking, or in my case stalking, along. Love the concrete floors, the wine storage in the galley kitchen, the little ponds at the base of the windows, the traditional facade which never lets on that something bright and shiny new is hiding just behind. You'll find the house in Northcote, Melbourne. Link here while it lasts.

P.S. Australian real estate agents please stop with the HDR photography!!!! Hmmmmmm .... deep breath. Calm now Jo :)

Another kitchen I can appreciate -- what you need for the task at hand, and no more. I do wish some of the age and charm of the original house could have been brought into the addition, if only in furniture choices (dining room!) lighting, or a bit of plasterwork -- I would probably remove the wall of wood over the wine racks as simply being too much of a thing, and use that space to bring in the sense of period set by the front trellis and the fireplace in the front bedroom. The leg-windows are excellent, I like anything that changes up the expected in a sensible manner. Very comfortable home.

Interesting! What a difference between inside and out.

Does anyone know what the vine is on the front porch?

I'd rather appreciate the kitchen opening in the dining room than in the living room. Love the leg-windows too.

Gosh but I'm getting tired of trading in the charm and intimacy of a home for living rooms that look like high-end law office reception areas, and bathrooms that look like executive washrooms. Enough with the corporate style, already!

Oh I am a fan of the bedrooms of this place.. they're so different yet there are cohesive elements that tie them together with the rest of the house
