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...

Ok, so this home isn't so flash from the front,
especially for Brighton,
but I liked a couple of the rooms a lot...

Nice original architecture in the old rooms,
like ceilings etc...

But I loved this room,
what a great feel it has.

Great kitchen,
back to basics here.

and the rear yard looks a bit sad thru
the window doesn't it!!

AND here's the Master Plan!

AND here's what the Agent said about it!
Substantial '30s beauty on a blue-chip corner
Landmark design with benchmark quality on a blue-chip Brighton corner. Surrounded by luxury homes on the corner of Peacock St, this substantial four bedroom, 2.5 bathroom 1930's residence on over 10,000 sqft showcases a renovation of professional standing. Graced with fine formal lounge and dining rooms (featuring elaborate ceilings and fireplace) and breath-taking family living (with a soaring lightwell and a wall of westerly windows), this exceptional home steps up to a vast first floor children's domain (with cleverly-fitted study area and endless play space) and steps back to a very private master-suite (with exquisitely-fitted dressing-room and a flawless ensuite). Detailed to the most exacting standard with moulded Corian benchtops (even for the bathrooms), Miele appliances (even a combi-oven) and Emporite cabinetry (even for the robes), this outstanding home features every prestige appointment inside (ducted heating, air-con and vacuum, video-intercom, alarm, surround-sound, LAN cabling), 22,000L underground tank reticulated to the garden, side-access double auto-garage with direct entry. A home of distinction.

I see so many lovely apartments in
Toorak, it's kinda hard to pick a couple.

They all have good rooms,
and a few "not so good" rooms,
these were the best two I could find tonight!

They all have such grand exteriors & entrances!

You'll notice most of the views out the windows
are simply of other buildings,
not like the Toorak homes!!

It's bit like a porn fitout here!
Something odd about it!!

AND here's the Master Plan!

This apartment is a bit more homely,
less Versace!

Gorgeous exterior,
if you've been around Toorak you'll agree
that there are so many apartment buildings
that look like this from the outside.
Just lovely!

What is it with Toorak and parquetry,
ewe, so dated to me!

The Daintree - Classic Provincial Styling

In Fabulous Floreat!
General Features
PRICE RANGE: Approx $1.5 Million
  • Property Type: House
  • Bedrooms: 4
  • Bathrooms: 2
Indoor Features
  • Study
Outdoor Features
  • Garage Spaces: 2
This home is designed and decorated beautifully,
I adore the bedroom, as I'm sure you will.

Obviously it is a builder's display home
(WA builders APG),
the RE Agent (see below) refers to it as
the builder's "Landmark" Home,
You'll see why now!

I can't really nail the design influence,
I'm going to go with "Classic Provincial Styling",
but you might also throw "Aussie" into
that title if you really wanted to!

I hate to nitpick, BUT
what is it about those sofas I don't like,
obviously the armrests,
I am not a "round armrest" person,
does anyone else agree on that point???

I'm lovin those shiny tiles,
I don't know what it would be like to live with them,
but I sure do love the look of em!

Isn't that bedroom divine!!!!
How bout that doona!
Is it silver or taupe, maybe taupe/silver!!
I want one - NOW DAMN IT!

Make sure you click here to Tweet it to your Tweeps!

The outdoor entertaining areas are
simply spectacular, I notice display homes
getting better & better at these areas,
they must have some pretty fab
landscapers - which I could afford one!

AND A Veggie Patch to boot,
I mean, that's pretty good effort by a builder
for a display home!

AND here's the Master Plan!

AND here's What the Agent said about it!
