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...

Yes, here I am (on the right) at the Problogger Event 2012 last week.
I'm here with a crazy lady I met there,
one of many,
her name is Clare, and she is starting her first
blog very soon called OMGisthatreallyme.com
(how funny is that!)

It was a two day event, which I loved,
and this photo was taken at the evening event at the Maha Restaurant,
in Melbourne City, when we were quite tired, but had a good time anyway.

This was a photo booth that Darren arranged,
the whole event included all meals, which were lovely,
and this fun photo booth too!

So that's why I've been a bit quiet lately,
I've been working on a few new online business ventures lately,
however, I haven't forgotten my old design blog,
and here's my latest Realestate.com.au house find,
I hope you can see yourself living there,
as can I.

What lovely black iron lace detailing.
 But then take a look at the hallway detailing,
including the ceiling!!

Not too shabby!

And here's the Master Plan!

AND Here's What the Agent Says about it!

Majestic Family Victorian With Peerless Lifestyle Benefits
Regal amidst a streetscape of classical refinement, this landmark Victorian residence bestows magnificent 5 bedroom plus study accommodation in one of Melbourne's most prestigious precincts.

A rare offering unlike any other, the home enjoys a private park-side position with unprecedented access to all that Melbourne as to offer. Perfectly nestled between the lush greenery of Fawkner Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens, the luxurious family domain delivers a range of premium attractions and amenities at its doorstep, including award-winning Domain Road restaurants and cafes, Toorak Road boutiques, leading private schools - such as Melbourne Grammar and Melbourne Girls Grammar - and St Kilda Road trams. Situated just across the Yarra from the MCG as well as within minutes from the heart of the CBD, the property takes full advantage of its tranquil yet central locale to provide for an inner-city lifestyle that is second to none.

Mindful of its period integrity, an exquisitely crafted renovation/ extension has created a timeless blend of rich heritage adornment and elegantly appointed contemporary spaces that extend to a superb north facing colonnade pergola and high walled, verdant garden that expertly satisfies both exceptional entertaining and discerning family lifestyle priorities.

Beyond a grand verandah facade and secure return drive, a distinctive central reception with ornate 12 foot ceilings and cornices introduces fireside formal sitting and dining with box bay window, spacious study with open fire and northern open plan living and dining featuring open fire, bay window seating and chic European stone kitchen with WIP and workstation. 5 outstanding bedrooms include x1 with private ensuite, the main with his and hers WIRs, luxurious travertine ensuite and private sun terrace. An equally luxurious principle bathroom serves the remaining 3 bedrooms.

Additional complements include attic style games zone, downstairs powder room, leadlight feature windows, secure intercom entry, separate storage room, ducted vacuum, security, remote double garage/ pedestrian access via Mason Street at the rear
