Stalking modern minimalism behind a Victorian facade

It must be an Australian thing but all the fun happens out the back of our houses especially in old houses with new extensions. I'm stalking a Victorian era house in a leafy street in Melbourne's Elwood. While the facade sports a cool contemporary paint job the building still remains true to its architectural past. Hints of what is to come are revealed as you walk through the front door passing the bedrooms then BAM! all minimal and scandi, edgy and modern. Link here while it lasts.

P.S. Does anyone else's inner stylist want to tidy those beds and pull the vacuum cleaner backwards and forwards evenly over the carpet?

Stalking a mural

My second stalking today is in Newtown in Sydney. From the street a simple brick facade that sits comfortably beside its historic neighbours but take a look from the rear and it's another story. A striking mural on the boundary wall faces a large public park. Inside it's all comtemporay chic with a great entertaining area with pool in the backyard. Just slide back panels in the mural to take in the parkland beyond. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking a warehouse apartment

I'm in my beloved Fitzroy in inner-city Melbourne and I'm stalking warehouse apartments. High ceilings, beams, large steel framed windows. What's not to love? I'm already fantasising about my midlife crisis and the need to escape to hipster heaven. Speaking of middle age hipsters don't miss the video. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking in London

Whoa! Real estate in Sydney may be expensive but London prices are stratospheric. OK I admit this 3 bedroom loft apartment is in the Westbourne Terrace area of London but £2,850,000? Ouch! My sympathy goes out to all who must live in the British capital. Thank goodness I'm only virtually stalking and not actually looking for a place to call home. Love the quirky personality of this apartment. The art, the odds and ends. The bathrooms are cool and the glass floor scary. Link here while it lasts. Via Domus Nova.

Stalking leftovers

Hello my name is Jo and I'm a real estate addict. I stalk listings hoping to find the perfect property I can't afford anyway. Oh well a girl can dream. There is one problem though. I'm fussy. Not quite right, love the bones but ditch the furniture, bad photos, I need more photos please! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week I've found my usual old houses with expansive extensions, an artist's house, a mid century home that needs a new owner and some TLC, houses for sale and those already sold. Click on the photos to go to the listings. Via Domain and realestate.com.au.
