The real estate agent calls it “understated opulence” and “unparalleled sophistication and luxury”, I call it a trophy home …. but sometimes we want it big and bold and worth a squillion. I strolling scrolling in Melbourne’s prestigious suburb of Toorak. Expansive city views and expansive floors and walls of marble. Add the obligatory movie theatre, gym, wine cellar, roof top entertainment area along withan underground carpark as big as many people’s homes and it’s contemporary, clean lined luxury all the way.

A modern stone house in Spain

Posted on Mon, 6 May 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s hard to believe but this house in Girona, Spain was built in 2009. Ten years on the design is as fresh and stylish as ever. I must admit as much as I love the interiors that vegetable patch and all the stone walls is so inspiring. By Barcelona-based GCA Architects.

La Quinta

Because I can’t get Mexico out of my head, I thought I would share a bit of it with you today via this home designed by PPAA (Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados). Located in San Miguel de Allende, this weekend residence is minimal, filled with natural elements and is an absolute dream.

I’m real estate hunting in the oh so upmarket suburb of Point Piper. Built in 1905, this Edwardian mansion has expansive north easterly views across Point Piper and Rose Bay to Manly. I must admit my favourite luxury indulgence in this house is the master bedroom’s bath perched in its own alcove overlooking Sydney Harbour. The photos don’t do this property justice. You can get a better idea of how serenely beautiful it is from the video. Link here while it lasts.

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Kokoda Offices by Fiona Lynch.
