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...

Glorious East Malvern Treasure

"Tillbrook" in East Malvern, Vic

Property Summary

Category: House
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2
Garage: Double
Land: 1017.00sqm (approx)
Close to: Melbourne: 9km (direct line)

Another glorious restoration project, and beautiful results blending old house council building restraints with new design ideas and modern day concepts, like open plan living.

Just look at that facade!

I have to say that the interior in this home is wonderful, but a little unloved, I can't see the family items that make this a home. Maybe they are all out of the way for a better viewing of the home.

It's currently on the market for around $2 Million Big Ones.

You may know by now that I'm not a big fan of pelmets/sways etc... But the pic below does the old "hairdo" justice.

Obviously a heritage home, I think built early 1900's. Therefore open plan living was not the rage back then... but here, they have adapted this modern day phenomenon of open plan, in such a way, it looks like it always was - a perfect renovation!

Even the pelmet and holland blind in this home takes a basic furnishing to a new level because of the detail...

AND the master plan if you are interested...

AND what did the agent say:

Amazing facade....xv

That facade had me at hello. I think I like everything about this house. I might put a bit more color in the kitchen and I would never do white chairs (I'm just imagining all the red wine and pasta sauce disasters), but that's just my personal style.

Fee said...

The facade is just wonderful, its like the dolls house I use to dream about when I was 7!

However the inside is lacking some what, but oh what I could do with it.
