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...

This is a large country styled home,
quite lovely despite it's size!




What a gorgeous hallway!




It must be that lovely yellow I'm drawn to in this home!

Now that's what I call a family room!
WOW


I don't think I've seen such lovely contemporary,
yet traditionally themed, curtains for a long time.

Oh good, plenty of room for my friends to park,
as if the huge land allotment isn't enough!



I must say, for $15 Million, I expect a pool & tennis court!






And here's the Master Plan!
AND here's what the Agent said about it!

I love the colour of the render on this home.





I think this home theatre needs expansion!



This is an example of a contemporary WOW factor kitchen.

I love the way the kitchen table extends off from the kitchen island.


Contemporary colours in bedroom/bath.



Gorgeous rear yard.


But where's the pool & tennis court?
I guess that's why it's not $15 Million!

I think one might break a hip getting into that bath in the 2nd property. It's so high!

Hi Annie, thanks so much for your comments on my bathroom renovation. Hope it's okay to let you know here - the tiles were $56.90/sq mtr for floor tiles and $25.00/sq mtr for wall, both were 300 x 600.
I am addicted to real estate and have just joined your gorgeous blog! Looking forward to your next post. Michelle
