I’m still real estate strolling scrolling and I have stumbled upon this cute little gingerbread cottage but look closer and you will find it’s a new build home by Mani Architecture with a thoroughly modern interior. Thoughts? Link here while it lasts.

 

You all know I like a Victorian era house. Brick or stone is even better. Gritty, old suburb perfect. Add a modern extension and I’m weak at the knees. Well this beauty in Melbourne’s Cremorne has one more thing that has turned me into a salvering mess … a fabulous Papua New Guinea tribal art collection. How much for the house and contents? When can I move in? Link here while it lasts.

Chasing the dream – the 80’s icon

Dear Mr Bank Manager,

That Sydney terrace house I asked you to let me buy in the last post? I might have changed my mind. As much as I love Victorian architecture I’m a sucker for the 80s and this iconic Ken Woolley designed suburban tower also in Paddington has my name written all over it. I even have the furniture to fit. Please lend me the money. Pretty please?

Sincerely,

Jo

I think by now you would know that I have a thing for beautifully renovated Victorian era architecture. I go weak at the knees for a stunning terrace house with contemporary yet sympathetic interiors. If the lower floor has exposed Sydney sandstone walls, light streaming in and a pool then I’m a goner. I’m real estate strolling scrolling in the Sydney suburb of Paddington in a stunning home with interiors by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects. If the bank manager would just lend me the millions required I’d move straight in. I wonder if the owner would leave the Leila Jeffreys’ bird photographs behind? Link here while it lasts.

I’m still in London and I’m still lamenting the fact that I can’t afford anything at all but a girl can still live vicariously through real estate listings. I must say that I could move straight into this split level apartment in an old print works factory in East Central London between Old Street and Clerkenwell. Exposed beams, bold blue kitchen and great art. Love it all.  Mitchell Street, London EC1 via The Modern House.
