Friday dreaming ...

I've always loved real estate (it must be because I grew up in Sydney, plus its Sydneyites favourite past time!) and browsing through the local rag ... I stumbled across this beauty.

Her facade immediately caught my attention ... isn't she beautiful! She is a very rare detached period home that has been converted into three substantial flats ... with an opportunity to convert back to a single dwelling.

She's not exactly in the area we live in ... but not very far ... the only problem is the price tag.
Guide price £13,000,000
Well as I said ... one can only dream ... and what a way to end the working week!

Happy Weekend!


  1. I just found your blog, I love it!!! such nice pics, as for $13M pounds, that's cheap! lol

  2. Ohhhh she is a beauty indeed....what a gem...shame about the price thought...a bit below my price range ; )lol

  4. HI Marina!!!
    ooops... won't be buying that too soon.. and a shame as I'm looking!! Actually you are right.. we are all obsessed with the realestate section.. although strangely .. since i got serious about it.. i stopped looking!! possibly as the 'yes I'll take it' ones weren't in my price range either.. you know the prices have gone right up again.. Should have bought last year!! Oh well.. ciao ciao xx Julie

  5. I just found your blog too and now I've got plenty of reading to distractme on this wet, cold Friday evening - thanks!
