Watsonia Watch

Just listed by Ray White with only one photo and no address is this potential beauty in Watsonia.

A bit of a mish-mash on the outside but still has great potential - Wonder is the inside is as 'ecclectic'.

Make Mine a Merchants

Okay, I will admit it - I have a bit of a penchant for 70's style homes at the moment!! There is something so warm and inviting about those strong dark beams and rough interior brickwork. Maybe its a throwback to weekends spent at my best friends (Merchant Builder) house in Corowa when I was growing up.. Who can say?

But surely you must agree with me, this house -15 Haldane Road, Eltham - is something special. Here's what Barry Plant have to say about it;
"This prestigious north facing Merchant builder home promises a lifestyle of luxury and relaxation. Architecturally designed to capture natural light, warmth, tranquil environs and stunning tree top vistas, this property is an entertainers delight. Featuring a flowing floor plan with expansive living spaces and multiple outdoor entertaining areas, this home is a brilliant canvas for stylish decoration. Features include a warm combination of
hand made Hawthorn bricks with natural timbers, gas ducted heating and reverse cycle air conditioning, open fireplace and wood heater, beautiful landscaped gardens by Robert Boyle, separate dog enclosure and overflow parking."

Minties Moment

Currently for sale through Jellis Craig is 17 Pyalong Avenue, Rosanna. Built in 1958, this neat and tidy home will most likely give way to a new development due to the fact that it fronts streets at both ends.

MR visited the 'cute as a button' home tonight and was enamored with its original timber windows (not the aluminium one!), light fittings, stone clad fireplace and 'rear' yard. We both love the minty green colour and I wouldn't be surprised if this is the orginal colour scheme. I believe the original owners are selling the property so those interested in the homes history could certainly get the info from the direct source!
