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...

I found it a bit hard to find an interesting property in QLD tonight,
been looking for hours, but this one I don't mind!

It's a warehouse conversion,
this is a very popular idea in Melbourne, don't know about other states!

Obviously close to Brisbane, with views to match!

Lovin the original features like timber beams on the ceiling
(painted thank god!)

Simple but effective conversion!

Even a pool in the grounds - very mod!

AND here's what the Agent said about it!


A backdrop of city views, a foreground of sub-tropical gardens, which can all be enjoyed from a generous sized balcony. A unique wedge shaped design, the zigzagged hallway begins with a charming foyer which then flows into three large king-sized bedrooms. Bedroom 2 and 3 are complete with built in cupboards, whilst the main bedroom has a large walk through robe and ensuite. The hallway finishes and opens into a large angular open plan living area which combines kitchen, lounge, dining and balcony.

This apartment is what Teneriffe living is all about. It’s going to makes an ideal investment for those looking to maximise capital gains from the boom in Woolstore living.

As I am recovering from my son's 3rd birthday party,
I now find myself back looking thru some lovely homes...
I found quite a few in NSW today, but this one stood out from the crowd!

An 1880's fully restored sandstone home,
this one is simply divine!

A lot of white throughout homes these days,
obviously a very popular colour, not so boring, just spectacular!

This is the epitome of indoor/outdoor living in Sydney I bet!

I can't imagine living with sandstone
in my hallway and bedrooms every day!

And I think the bathroom is perfect for this home,
bit glamour really!

This is living!

AND here is what the Agent said!

Meticulously restored and extended 1880s residence
A statement in superior craftsmanship and generous traditional proportions, this double fronted 1880s sandstone residence displays an inspired redesign that fuses original features with contemporary style to provide an exceptional entertainers' haven.
Nestled in one of Paddington's most prestigious streets
Grand formal reception rooms with exposed sandstone walls
High ceilings, refined period details and ornate fireplaces
Light filled contemporary living space with vaulted ceilings
Private entertainer's courtgarden
Heated swimming pool and secure rear parking for two cars
CaesarStone kitchen with Ilve and Fisher and Paykel appliances
Upper level double bedrooms and full main bathroom
Recycled blackbutt floors, period details and French doors
Within a short stroll to village cafes, eateries, boutiques.

Simple, with a dash of colour...

Nth Coogee, WA

General Features
PRICE RANGE: Over $2 Million

  • Property Type:House
  • Bedrooms: 4
  • Bathrooms: 2
OK, I realise this is a new build, hence staged etc etc,
but I still liked it, and I've been struggling to find
inspirational exy homes in WA lately,
so you'll have to settle for this one tonight!
(but I love it!)

But pivot entrance doors, if you haven't tried one,
try to, they are amazing - they feel fantastic to open/shut!

Great white on grey decor here...

Great long large kitchen,
wish my kitchen here was bigger!

I love that lime green colour a lot atm...
