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...

Not that I'm a huge fan of modern/contemporary homes,
and yes, I know there is a difference,
but I'm not sure how I'd exactly class this one,
either way, I was still blown away by this home,
the attention to detail, styling, feeling etc, wow.

From outside, you'd not think it to be too modern.

The Agent states that renowned architect Joe Chindarsi
renovated and extended the property into its current form

I'm not sure why that picture is sitting on the floor,
maybe they are moving house! LOL

Great eclectic contemporary styling.

What a gorgeous tiled feature sitting area.

And of course, a pool.

Here's the Master Plan!

This is the real deal for beachside living.
Not far from Sydney,
great feel to this home.
Not cutting edge styling, but def desirable!!!

The house is actually on a hillside,
which overlooks the beach below.
So it's quite high.

This house is all about the beach
and the views of the beach!

You get the feeling??

And here's the Master Plan!
AND here's what the Agent said about it!
The Ultimate Palm Beach Location and Lifestyle
This is one of the few homes in Palm Beach that has it all - north-facing, close proximity to the beach, uniquely private, the continuous sound of the surf and the iconic sweeping beach and ocean views. The rare location of this residence is one of its key attractions. The unique 52 metre north-facing frontage enables the house to spread across the hillside, endowing it with an exceptional sense of space. It is the only house on this level of the hill and there are no houses on either side, providing scarce privacy.

- Architecturally designed with a relaxed beachside feel
- Every room in the house has expansive beach and ocean views
- Cleverly designed to catch the cross breezes on hot summer days
- Indoor/outdoor open-plan living, perfect for entertaining
- Massive covered verandah plus "afternoon" and "morning" decks
- The expansive balcony, living, dining and family area provides space to enjoy the company of family and friends
- Three individually designed master suites and two additional guest bedrooms
- All bedrooms and suites feature designer ensuites and extensive wardrobes
- Large kitchen with second wet area and full chef's cooking facilities
- Only a stroll from the beach but exclusively removed from the immediate beach noise, turmoil and intrusiveness

This is the ultimate Palm Beach location and lifestyle.
