Still running late. Still no time to stop and chat. Still sharing homes for sale that caught my eye. Once again click on the pic to be taken to the listing. Via realestate.com.au
I’m running out the door and more importantly I’m running late. No time for gushing descriptions. Just enough time for a quick six. Real estate listings that is. Click on the picture to be taken to the listing (while the link lasts). Via realestate.com.au
As if my first post today didn’t have you scheming and dreaming of a way to move into a wonderful old farmhouse on Shelter Island then this post will tempt you even further. The renovation of this former fisherman’s cottage is also by SchappacherWhite Architects DPC. In fact it was the architects’ own home until they sold it (lucky new owners). The 1904 house underwent a sympathetic transformation creating a year round home just right for family and friends. The interiors feature natural materials and a neutral colour palette of whites and sands contrasted with black provides a perfect backdrop for a mix of modern, antique and found pieces.

It’s rustic yet sophisticated. It’s steeped in history yet modern. It’s an island house in a farmhouse. A modern extension to an early 1900s house on Shelter Island provided the space and level of luxury the owners desired while preserving the heart and soul of the old home. Think living room barn and bedroom in a shed, connecting glass walkways and a fabulous outdoor entertaining area. Shelter Island Farmhouse by SchappacherWhite Architects DPC.
Just as our first white house celebrated it’s stylish simplicity so does this contemporary house on Sydney’s northern beaches. Even though it doesn’t sit in a field of waving grasses tree tops and expansive blue sky are captured through a feature celestory window. Light and airy, open plan living perfect for the Australian climate. Skylight House by Rachel Hudson Architecture.
