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...

HOUSEKEEPING
Thanks Angelo for the link to your Burleigh Waters home for sale - I had a peek, it is a lovely home on the water, I have friends near you also on the water, and I love visiting them (and their boat!)... Good luck with your auction next week!

The home below caught my eye because despite the somewhat average appearance from the street, inside it is quite contemporary, and I don't think they have had interior designers, I think it's just the bones of this home that makes it so flashy!




I find this interior to be very contemporary, yet comfortable.



The house is only two years old.




Very nice fittings and fixtures throughout the bathrooms.





Interesting outdoor entertaining area!


One of the best pools I've seen in a long time!



AND here's what the agent had to say!

I had to blog about this Q1 Penthouse.
We had the joy of staying at the Q1 a couple of years back on holiday for a week with 1yo baby boy, but we weren't in the Penthouse I'm afraid!
This has it's own glass-walled terrace with a 13 metre indoor pool!


I don't think I've ever seen an indoor pool like this before...
Can you imagine the parties ... on the Gold Coast!!!
WOW

Lennonville Estate - Magnificent coastal property - Wonderful lifestyle & business potential

Lennonville Estate (circa 1835), a magnificent waterfront property occupying 126.6 hectares (312 acres) on the spectacular north coast of North Bruny Island, Tasmania.

A superb holding of absolute tranquility and pristine natural beauty, Lennonville Estate boasts an elegantly appointed five bedroom residence with breathtaking water views and beautiful established gardens that slope gently down to a private sandy beach with a jetty and deepwater anchorage.

Featuring a world class cherry orchard that has yet to reach its full potential and enjoys a substantial cash flow with lucrative expanding markets in Australia, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Canada and the USA, this extraordinary property also has a full size tennis court, a large American style equestrian centre with a stable complex and dressage arena, and a charming cottage for holidaymakers.

This wonderful rural retreat offers several more enticing opportunities for additional income streams.

Just 40 minutes from Hobart’s GPO, Lennonville Estate surely is ‘paradise found’.

Great sized home, great sized land, just a great home!


This kinda driveway surely says to you and your friends
"you have arrived!"



Two feature fire places in this huge living area, I like that!



I have to say, I personally would have placed that Plasma on the other side of the doorway wall to the mirror over the table (to the right of the picture above), not over the doorway. Doesn't it look peculiar there?



Interesting wine cellar.



Rumpus area overlooking pool etc...



I can't see a fence there, either that is a great glass fence,
or this pool is not child safe...





That is a pretty spectacular entertaining area tho, I can see myself and the girls lying around there all day in the sun... (childless!)



And what luxury rural home wouldn't have it's own tennis court!
