Stalking in Norway

Thanks to reader Silje I went real estate stalking in Norway when she sent me a link.

"This house for sale in Oslo caught my eye the other day, partly because the interior was so flippin cool, but mainly because this architectural style is quite rare in Norway. As in: extremely rare. There are only a few of these “garden towns” as they are called, and this house in particular is a part of the oldest garden town in Oslo – Arctander town. It was named after the mayor of Oslo, Sofus Arctander, who commissioned the building of these houses in 1907. Like I said, they are rare and they are never up for sale. Imagine my surprise when I saw this gem from 1911 on sale the other day. Well worth a look!"

And you know what? Silje is right. This house is flippin cool! Link here (with lots more photos) while it lasts.

Stalking leftovers

The spring real estate selling season is fast approaching here in the land of Aus. Properties are trickling onto the market. Soon it will be a gush then a flood then a whimper then a bang as the market races to capitalise on the warm sunny days then retreats before Christmas. I've been stalking here, there and everywhere and here are my leftovers. As you know I am fussy, particular, choosy, picky and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable, can't quite put my finger on it listings but all with something that has me nodding "yes". A couple almost made it to posts of their own. Click on the images to head to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.

Stalking 2

How do you beat stalking a fabulous light filled loft? Let's go stalk this amazing pavilion house which clings to the hillside at Great Mackerel Beach in Sydney's Pittwater area. Access is via ferry or water taxi from Palm Beach opposite. With no roads in and surrounded by the Ku-ring-gai National Park this house is all about that view. Well worth the climb up. That's what I'm telling myself anyway. At least there's an inclinator to the guest pavilion. Link here while it lasts.

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.
