OK I admit I’m choosy and hard to please. I’ve been stalking leftovers. You know. Those listings that are not quite right, have bad photos or I need more photos please! House is amazing, furniture is deplorable, styling is bland or maybe I’m just in a bad mood. Can’t quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding “yes”. This week’s finds include a tower apartment which is a little tired but has great bones, a couple of country getaways including an old courthouse and a modernist Australian classic at risk of falling into the hands of developers.

First up today I’m in the Melbourne suburb of Kew stalking a small Victorian-era end of terrace with traditional brick façade leading into a large, light-filled, modern extention. It’s a combination of history and luxury modern living. The sort of thing that Australian designers do so well. (This house is a collaboration between NTF Architecture and Nexus Designs.) Link here while it lasts.
Needs a lot of work. Plus it’s heritage listed. Plus it has to stay that colour pink/salmon. Massive price drop.
I’m stalking an urban oasis in the Sydney suburb of Paddington. The Victorian-era terrace house has undergone an extensive architecturally designed renovation and extension resulting in a striking and unique home. From its period rooms at the front to open light-filled and cutting edge modern additions behind, from city streetscape to Japanese gardens and 25m lap pool it’s a remarkable home and even though the Sydney real estate market is showing signs of cooling the reserve at auction will be eye-wateringly high for sure. Don’t miss the video. Link here while it lasts.
