A Georgian house. A teeny tiny Georgian house. Just those first two windows wide. They call it a “pied a terre” on the real estate website. Two bedrooms, two floors, elegant french style interiors, high ceilings, painted timber floors, two fireplaces, slate roof and sandstock exterior walls. Why am I so excited? I love Georgian buildings, something about their spare, elegant lines but they are so rare in Australia. After all the British colonised this country only in 1788 and Sydney was a rough and ready town well into the first quarter of the 19th century. These little gems are so rare. A truly beautiful little house in a superb suburb. Mind you it may not have been such elegant living in the early 1800s. Maybe my love of Georgian is from a romanticised and sanitised 21st century perspective. Still it’s so cute I just want to pinch it’s little house cheeks!
