It's that time of the week again. Stalking leftovers. Lovely homes? Yes ... well ... er ... maybe. You see I am very finicky when it comes to my virtual real estate stalking. 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". It might even be something as simple as a cool staircase. This week I seem to have got stuck in Sydney with just a short side trip to Melbourne but you'll find a designer's apartment (not really a leftover), an apartment more about the view and the beach than the space itself and another that is probably just good CGI because no one has an apartment with that much cool stuff. Click on the images to head to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.

Can you buy a house just because of a kitchen and its garden courtyard outlook? I think you can. The rest of the house is nice (I'm sure it looks fab in real life) but it's the breakfast window seating and that wall of plants clinging to the Sydney sandstone outcrop that has me in a twirl. I'm stalking in surprisingly leafy Paddington on a very busy road but from these photos you'd never know. Link here while it lasts.
Check out this Toronto home that Lorena sent us the link to. It is a bit minimalist-harsh on the outside (someone called it an iPhone house...and check out the decrepit tiny bungalow next door) but I really like the interior layout. The decor could use a little personality and maybe a tiny bit of colour but these are real estate photos, and this home was listed for about $3.2 million. Yep, Toronto real estate is pretty outrageous. And this apparently sold pretty quickly. (Thanks Lorena!)
OK. I know. It's another old terrace house with a modern extension and an open plan kitchen living area. It's modern architecture not only added on but it has seemingly insinuated itself through the house's old bones. I know the purists will hate it, those who cherish historical restoration and those who herald modernism. I know. I know. It's an architectural chimera and I love it. I'm stalking the cheek to jowl terrace houses of Darlinghurst, Sydney and I couldn't be happier. Link here while it lasts.
I have a small band of readers who share my addiction to real estate stalking and send me links. You know who you are ladies! I hope I haven't created a monster though. Apparently this stalker can actually see this building from her desk. Is the virtual becoming the actual? Just kidding. On to the apartment. Love it. The art, the views, even how it has been shot for the campaign. Stalking in Surry Hills, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.
