I’m real estate
strolling scrolling in London again. Am I crazy? The property may be amazing but the prices are eye watering. Fancy a Georgian era townhouse with a stylish modern twist slap bang in the Soho area? Do you have a fistful of dollars? Oh well we can dream can’t we. St Anne’s Court, London W1 via The Modern House.
“Chinampa” is the name given to the floating gardens used for cultivation by the Aztecs. It’s also the name of a one-bedroom 58ft widebeam canal boat on London’s Regent Canal. That’s right I’m real estate stalking a London canal boat and why not? It’s a wonderful mix of vintage and bespoke, romantic and stylish. I might not dream of running away to the high seas but I could very easily settle into this small and beautifully formed home afloat. Link here while it lasts.
I’m real estate
strolling scrolling in the Northern New South Wales “it” holiday town of Byron Bay. It’s stylish and chic but also boho and alternative, the place where Sydney-siders escape their stratospheric real estate market … except that Byron Bay now holds the dubious title of most expensive market in Australia. Today I am sharing a simple beachside getaway (but definitely not beach front), relaxed coastal living for just $3.3 million. Ouch! On the bright side that’s Australian Dollars so overseas readers need not fear because our currency is definitely weak at the moment and I guess you can always rent out the backyard studio on Airbnb to help with the mortgage.

“The award-winning revival of one of Randwick’s finest Victorian Italianate homes unites classical grandeur with contemporary finesse in this landmark terrace to create an exceptional family home. This grand 7m-fronted terrace has been transformed by interior designers Arent & Pyke and architect Tom Ferguson with a collaborative design that injects a sense of life and vitality into the striking interiors.”
For once the house lives up to the real estate hyperoble. I always like comparing real estate listing photos and those on ther designers’ website. I’m stalking in the Sydney suburb of Randwick and let’s just say I have had a thing for Cole and Son’s Nuvole wallpaper in a bathroom since featuring this house back in 2015.
“An owner-architect’s renovation has transformed this hallmark Victorian terrace into a striking contemporary retreat of exquisite style and design sophistication.” Real estate speak for a graphic black and white home that packs a punch within its small footprint. Favourite bits? The kitchen and the courtyard. Link here while it lasts.
