A secret garden in Randwick

Not so much a secret garden although you must admit that backyard is a bit of a hidden oasis. No it's a design by Secret Gardens in Sydney's inner suburb of Randwick. Bright and breezy. Like being at a holiday resort 365 days a year.

Two houses, same suburb, same street, separated by scant meters. I'm partial to both, can't afford either but my love affair with small heritage cottages with architect extensions continues. First the sandstone house. Link here while it lasts.
