Right in the middle of Sydney. Close to the bridge and the Opera House. Well they say it’s all about location, location, location but in this case it’s also about loft living. High ceilings with sleek lines and polished timber floor boards. Walls of windows and mirrored walls to bounce around the urban view. The mezzanine bedroom is a little disappointing, the bathroom needs a spruce up and I’d want to move my own furniture in but when you have those windows … sigh. Outrageously expensive at $1.55 million but that’s Sydney. Link here while it lasts.
I’m stalking a building in Sydney’s Darlinghurst that from the street you would not particularly notice but inside it has been converted into three residences that celebrate its industrial beginnings. Upstairs a four bedroom home with stylish eat in kitchen and courtyard garden. Downstairs two studio apartments that mean if I bought the place you could all take turns coming to stay and we can congregate around that table. Only problem is I would need around $4,700,000. Oh well that’s what real estate stalking is for. Dreaming. Link here while it lasts.
Stalking this time in the Melbourne suburb of Albert Park and a development of an old commercial stables building and the Victorian era house at the other end of the block. Between is a modern addition that provides walkways, internal courtyard and kitchen dining with master bedroom above. It’s mix of hero spaces and intimate rooms, weathered old bricks and hard edged stone, glass and steel. The design is by Robson Rak Architects. Link here while it lasts.
It just goes to show the almost magical power of painting a small space all white. Walls and floors and ceiling, furniture white, warm it up with timber accents and if you’re lucky increase your small apartment with expansive views. I’m stalking an apartment for sale in Potts Point, inner Sydney. Wouldn’t this be a fabulous base to explore the city? Link here while it lasts.
My second stalking
victim I mean house is another little Victorian terrace this time in the Sydney suburb of Bondi Junction. Here extra space has been added through a modern two storey extension to the rear. Extra light floods in through bi-fold doors and clerestory windows and like our other house there is a striking modern staircase. Link here while it lasts.
