Stalking leftovers

I don't need to hide it. We all know that I'm a real estate addict. I stalk listings hoping to find the perfect property I can't afford anyway and don't even need. There is one problem with all this though. You see 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 there is everything from a one bedroom flat to multi-million dollar mansions (including one with taxidermy that has to go), extensions and renovations and a red brick bungalow that spells out its address. Click on the photos to go to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.

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 and don't even need. 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 renovations and extensions including an interesting makeover of a 70s brick bungalow, a tin shed studio in a back yard, a couple of historical properties and of course some killer Sydney water views. Click on the photos to go to the listings while they last. All via realestate.com.au.

Stalking modern mid century

Not so much mid century modern more a modern riff on the style. Breeze blocks and views, stone and warm timbers, a concrete kitchen island and even more winding like a ribbon through the garden. I'm real estate stalking in Bellevue, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking a church conversion

We are huge church conversion fans here on Desire to Inspire and this once derelict country chapel is one of my favourites. The former Catholic church was deconsecrated in 1993 and quickly fell into disrepair with the roof eventually collapsing and the remaining stone walls looking to quickly follow. Purchased by a local builder, the church has been lovingly restored with a sympathetic extension referencing it's form and simplicity. There are even remnants of the original hand-painted friezes. Yes I know that the purists among you will say that it's cheating when the new build is substantially larger than the conversion but I love how the tiny chapel has not been tampered with in an attempt to squeeze more in. Located in Yandoit in country Victoria, it is a short drive from the spa town of Daylesford. And, dear readers, it's for sale. I wish I had the just under $1 million needed to purchase it and a reason to move to so far away. Link here while it lasts.

When art makes all the difference

There is nothing overly exciting in the layout or architecture of this Swedish apartment for sale via Lagerlings, but throw in some large scale framed photography, gorgeous Thonet bentwood armchairs and an equally gorgeous dining table and classy herringbone hardwood floors and blah became BOOM!
