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...

 The ad for this house said "on prestigious Victoria Avenue",
I have no idea what that Avenue is like, but I sure would like to visit there now!

Old Queenslander home, how can you go wrong!
Well, I think this may be a later "replica" model,
but still, I love the detailing...

Merry Christmas everyone,
Happy New Year
See you in 2013!

 OK, no designer here,
but the owners obviously have nice taste,
well I like it anyway.
Great wall colours,
Love the ceiling detailing...
TWEET it HERE if you like it too.

OK, not the fanciest kitchen, something to update in due course I'd say!

 I love the traditional pretty bedrooms, my cup of tea!
Although it is very "country", maybe this for my future country house,
and something more modern for my "city" house!

 It just looks like it's in too good a nick doesn't it for a real old Queenslander...

 Lovely garden to boot!

 And here's the Master Plan if you're interested!

AND here's what the Agent said about it!

 I can never get this new blogger formatting to work perfectly,
too many spaces, wrong size fonts,
but hey, what expect when you're not paying for it...
Maybe it's time to shift this to Wordpress, I don't know.
AM went to Wordpress recently, and most of her blogroll disappeared.
So a lot of my traffic went too,
So I'll think about it - I love my blog roll.

It's a blogger thing.

This home is in Brighton -need I say that,
they all look like this don't they!!!
I loved the chequered floors,
And check out that WIR ladies
yes, its perfect for any of us, now.

OH AND before I forget
Merry Christmas everyone,
thanks for following my blog,

 Nice entry...  Nice security door!
 Exquisite - plain, but still beautiful!
 It just feels like a fancy hip coffee shop to me,
I love it, I want it, and I deserve it - give it to me now!!

 I'm not a fan of that wallpaper I'm afraid...
but I do love a fancy wallpapered powder room tho!
