Still chasing the real estate dream but this time I’m in the inner Sydney suburb of Woollahra eying off a small but stylish Victorian cottage full of charm, light and art work. Historical details and modern creature comforts make it a perfect city pad. Link here while it lasts.

 

Bungalow blues

Posted on Thu, 5 Mar 2020 by midcenturyjo

“Located on a large leafy suburban block Bungalow House has been transformed and reconfigured from a labyrinthine of rooms & hallways to thoughtfully planned living spaces. By retaining the existing footprint and carefully replanning each space, internal spaces were renovated, each room designed and transitioning into one another to reflect the family, location and farmhouse design aesthetic.”

The Oak House (named for the mature oak that dominates the site) by Melbourne based Kennedy Nolan.
