Stalking an electrical substation

I love adaptive re-use of industrial buildings and I'm loving the conversion of this small electrical substation in Paddington in Sydney. I lived in an electrical substation over 20 years ago when the owner went overseas to work for Médecins Sans Frontières. It was more like camping though as the renovation was in its early stages. Perhaps the new owner will let me camp here if they ever go overseas. A lot more stylish ... and comfortable. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking Cate Blanchett's home

It's not often you get to stalk the home of a two-time Academy Award winner but welcome to the palatial Sydney home of Cate Blanchett. The historic Hunters Hill Home has been extensively renovated since Blanchett and her husband Andrew Upton, Sydney Theatre Company Artistic Director, purchased the property in 2005 with the re-design a collaboration between Alwill Design and Lesiuk Architects. Gardens are by Will Dangar. The sale is via expressions of interest and the asking price is rumored to be in the $20 million ball park. You can find the listing here while it lasts.

In the tree tops

High amongst the tree tops is this calm oasis. Earthy, natural tones and textures create a peaceful setting for this contemporary home with interiors by Sydney-based Designers In The City. It would be easy to think that the rooms need scream to stand their ground against the stellar views but the designers instead have created a simple luxury the soothes and cocoons.

Stalking 2

If I can't have the last house in Sydney maybe I'll take this little house in South Yarra, Melbourne. Still has the old on the outside, new on the inside thing going on with the cutest kid's room. No wonder I'm stalking it. It's the home of an architect and an interior designer. Link here while it lasts. (And if you'd like to see what it looked like before they wove their magic here is a link to the property when it was last for sale.)

Stalking 1

I'm stalking in my favourite Sydney suburb Redfern. Once a tough and gritty inner city working class area (some would argue slum) it is now the home of soaring real estate prices as its historic houses are restored and the Sydney price bubble just keeps getting bigger and bigger. The house we are stalking ticks all my boxes. Georgian in style, modern in interiors, on the border of my next favourite Sydney suburb Surry Hills. There is even a separate basement flat in case you want to come visit. We could go see my favourite football team the South Sydney Rabbitohs (Go the Bunnies!), explore the treasure at Seasonal Concepts or hit the Bourke St Bakery. Oh dear I'm excited about this one. Now if only I could afford the outrageous price tag. Link here while it lasts.
