“Blissful family haven of space, light and privacy” and “Relaxed, functional and flexible”. The real estate agent is on a roll with the rhetoric. It may be grand but it’s also effortless. I’m not even showing you the view over parkland to the city skyline. I’m stalking in Centennial Park in Sydney and I think I could happily move in, dark red grass cloth walls and all. Link here while it lasts.
I’m stalking in the Melbourne suburb of Elsternwick, a Victorian-era residence that has been renovated and extended. The light grey rendered facade gives just a hint of the modern house behind the historic walls. Open plan living, huge walls of glass and of course that inside outside living that Australians crave in their homes. Link here while it lasts.
Sometimes it takes just one room, a single perfect space that captures your heart and soul completely. This lovely heritage home in Sydney’s prestigious Darling Point is beautiful. The windows are stunning, the kitchen is amazing but it is the garden room, or at least what I call the garden room, that will haunt my design dreams for months to come. Lead-light and parlour palms, rattan seats and french oak tables. Perfection. This is one of the times I wish I was actually touring the house not just real estate stalking. Link for the listing here while it lasts.
Mas de Bigot is an absolutely beautiful 18th century hideaway in Saint Rémy de Provence. A “concept art home” designed by Gérard Faivre that is available for sale – fully renovated and decorated. It is 600 m², on 10 hectares that includes a lake, an olive grove, and a forest with a cabin. I think I’m in love! Anyone want to go halfsies on it? 🙂
