Unfortunately the striking series of white boxes and voids is let down in the listing by what appears to be a few sticks of furniture cobbled together to save it from being empty. My imagination is ticking over with what I would do to decorate the Queenscliff, Victoria conversion if it were ever mine. Link here while it lasts.
