Stalking churches again

Posted on Fri, 4 May 2018 by midcenturyjo

Kim and I have a fascination with church conversions. We can’t get enough. So when I came across this church hall (halls count as churches in our books) in my stalking endeavors I just had to share. It’s in the Melbourne suburb of Northcote. I love the open plan living with an industrial meets vintage cool vibe. There’s even a self contained residence at the rear. Now I wonder what the church next door looks like? Link here while it lasts.

A home for sale in Arlington

Posted on Thu, 3 May 2018 by KiM

Here is another example of a home styled to sell. Photographer Marianne Blackham sent over these photos of a home for sale in Arlington, Virginia. At almost 6,000 sq ft with 5 bedrooms and a gorgeous yard, this home is a stunner. The coffered ceilings, flooring made from 150 year old reclaimed wood, custom kitchen cabinets, many french doors out to the yard and stained glass in the master bedroom make this place a dream.

Still stalking

Posted on Mon, 30 Apr 2018 by midcenturyjo

You would think I haven’t got very far these past few days, that I’m caught in a virtual real-estate-stalking parallel universe. It couldn’t be further from the truth. Although I’m sharing this inner city Melbourne warehouse style home with its polished concrete floors, steel framed windows and soaring ceiling in its impressive entrance I haven’t spent the entire weekend stalking. I’ve actually been working on a new master bedroom in my own house that I hope to share with you any day now. I’m moving from my old black bedroom to a white, bright room across the corridor. It’s not that I fell out of love with black walls. It’s just time for a change. In the meantime you can tell me how you feel about the black ceiling in this warehouse’s open plan living space.

Stalking on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 28 Apr 2018 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking in the Melbourne suburb of Northcote today and what is on my real estate radar is this light, bright, family home. The modern renovation and extension takes what is a simple wooden cottage and transforms it into a four bedroom, open plan home with seamless indoor-outdoor living. It’s up for auction with a guide price of $1,800,000 – $1,980,000 AUD. (And yes Australian house prices are still crazy.) Link here while it lasts.


Today I’m stalking on two continents and it’s serendipitous that they just happen to be Australia and Canada.  Even better the Canadian property belongs to a long time reader. I’m teasing with just a couple of images from each. Click on the link to see more and good luck with your sale Matthieu.
