I was all prepared to continue the saga of Sydney versus Melbourne that has developed in my real estate stalking but here’s the rub. I suddenly realised that both houses I had bookmarked are from… Melbourne. Sorry Sydney. Maybe next week. Love the history of this 19th century grocery store in Port Melbourne now converted to a quirky family home. The romance as well as the scars are proudly incorporated into a home that is fun and one of a kind.
What’s hiding behind this next petite historical facade in Albert Park? More than you’d expect. Renovations in Melbourne are known for getting as much “bang” out of their block as possible without losing amenity. This is an elegant, contemporary extension of a simple wooden home with a not so simple price tag. So brash and bold and quirky or refined, clever and hidden? What’s your choice? Melbourne or Melbourne?
