Hello

This blog is my *virtual magazine* of stunning homes in Australia currently for sale. The homes are not necessarily perfect (like in a magazine shoot) so you need to forgive some obvious mistakes, and just enjoy seeing how others live, perhaps even take some inspiration from here n' there! (if you see your home here, take a bow because I search high and low before I finally decide to post a home for my blog!) THANKS FOR DROPPING BY...

Equisite East Malvern Home

Beautiful Living @ "Claremont"

Property Summary

Category: House
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 3
Close to: Melbourne: 9km (direct line)
I have always said that I'd prefer not to live in older/heritage style homes because they are so boxy, difficult floor plans, hard to renovate etc.

But this home really smashes that preconception to pieces.



It has modern bright filled open rooms...


Complete contemporary traditional styling and decoration throughout...


Open plan kitchen/dining, as tho it was when built...
(including a WIP)



And the master bed has a luxury ensuite!


This is a home that could change my mind on living in a older home, as long as I didn't have to do the reno's - imagine the cost!!!

That might explain the agent's asking price for this property, around $2.5 million big ones!


And here's the master plan...






AND What did the Agent Say?

Hey Annie! A lovely house indeed! Lots of light in those elegant rooms. I especially like the kitchen. And I've always dreamed of having a fireplace in my bedroom.

Have a lovely day!

Love all of the windows - I'm an "as much natural light as possible" kind of girl. If you make a headboard, I want to see it! :-) Hope you're having a good day.
