It should be obvious to you dear reader that my house drug of choice is the Victorian terrace. Yes, yes I know that they are narrow and dark and a lot of times are screaming out for a sympathetic modernisation but I can’t help it. I’m hooked. I’ve been real estate strolling scrolling and I’d like to get my grubby little fingers on this one. Great job so far and lots of potential for even more improvements. For sale here while the link lasts.

It may be a marriage of old and new, historic facade and modern metal entrance screen on the outside but inside it’s all about modern living in this terrace house for sale in Sydney’s Surry Hills. The rear garden may be bijou but it’s perfectly formed. A lush green courtyard drawing the heart and eye outside. Link here while it lasts.

Chandlers Reach

Posted on Sun, 22 Sep 2019 by KiM


This is pretty much my dream home right here. Funky vintage mash-ups on the interior with modern artwork and a black exterior with coloured stone and decking and A RIVER in your backyard AND multiple outbuildings to have your own personal space along with a space to shoo partner/children to keep them out of your hair. Sounds absolutely perfect to me. For sale via The Modern House.

Conjuring the American bayou with its black cladding and superb situation on the banks of the River Rother, Chandlers Reach occupies the longest private river frontage in Rye. Consisting of a main house and a series of converted outbuildings, accommodation extends to almost 4,000 sq ft, with parking for several cars, a garage, substantial 200 ft garden, and uninterrupted views across the diverse natural habitat of Romney Marshes, to the sea beyond. The main house is arranged over two levels, with five bedrooms in all. Painted-timber floors and internal cladding of timber and corrugated steel contribute to the wonderful tapestry of materials within, resulting in playful and uplifting aesthetic throughout. Spanning the considerable length of the property are three outbuildings. Two of these have been converted into self-contained studios, with one currently earning significant income through holiday rental (the house is also a popular choice for location shoots). The third is used as a creative studio and office but is plumbed for use as accommodation.
