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 looked for over an hour tonight at SA homes.

The thing is, there's so many gorgeous
South Australian (SA) home "exteriors"
BUT, and it's a big BUT,
when you look inside the homes,
oh dear, not so good.
I was nearly going to do a post with just pics
of the front facades - they are the best in Aus for me.
But seriously SA'ians, can you decorate beyond the 80's??

Then I found this little beach shack,
and I thought, ok, it's staged to sell,
it's new, but there is still heaps of great things
to take as inspiration from this house,
so I'll take it!
(and it was the best I could find by a long shot!!)

Nearly $2 Million, but ok,
if you've got it, why not!

I've never heard of Encounter Bay,
but I'd love to go see it one day!

I think this is the "stand out" thing in the whole house,
great fire place, awesome!

AND here's the Master Plan!

AND here's what the Agent said about it!

Ultimate Beach Home in a CLASS of its own.
This state of the art Californian Modern influenced residence was proudly designed and built by Dawley Property. Another show stopper to add to their portfolio!

Without doubt one of the most spectacular ocean front homes on the South Coast. If you are looking for design excitement, quality interiors in a prime waterfront location, then you will not be disappointed.

This unique corner residence maximizes space, light and privacy. The stylish interiors are of world class standards, including the imported furnishings and fabrics. All the contemporary designer furniture is included in the sale!

On entrance through the solid ironbark pivot door, you will be mesmerized by the high gloss walnut floors, chiffon Californian sheer curtains, imported European ethanol fireplace and the expansive commercial windows that capture the ultimate sea views.

The lower level comprises:

Formal front lounge with 6 m ceiling
Executive Jag kitchen complete with oversize marble 32mm benches
Miele appliances
Enclosed food preparation area
All finishes of the highest contemporary standard
Kitchen, dining, lounge area wraps around and opens on to glorious paved outdoor room designed around Dedon Moroccan influenced furniture
Separate powder room
New York' style laundry including Bosch washing machine and dryer

Australian Oak staircase certainly is a stairway to heaven

First floor comprises:

One of the best master suites in South Australia
Floor to ceiling Bisazza mosaic tiles creating a luminous shell for the simply stunning freestanding black and white enamel bath
Floor to ceiling 2-pack built in robes
Sea views from the master suite
Also separate rain shower ensuite with WC
Master suite is a must see
Upstairs family room with picture glass window
2nd main designer bathroom
Plus 3 additional bedrooms (4 in total) all with large quality BIR's and ceiling fans.

The property also consists of reverse cycle air conditioning throughout and electrically operated sun louvres. The double garage with remote doors and internal access, and private rear yard really do complete this waterfront retreat.
