Peaceful Bellawongarah

Bellawongarah, Kangaroo Valley, Southern Highlands NSW Australia

There's no other way to say it; I am 100% in love with this property, it is perfection. Sure, it could use an AGA and yes, the built in seating in the family room isn't ideal but it's still perfection. And the pool, oh mah gawd that pool.

To my international readers, this property is approximately 2 hours south of Sydney in an area known as the Southern Highlands. This particular part of the Southern Highlands is in Kangaroo Valley and as such, is a little more temperate than, say, Bowral. This would make an absolutely fabulous country retreat.

Alexandria Oasis

57 Brandling Street, Alexandria (Sydney) NSW

I don't love bi-fold/accordion doors. Don't get me wrong, I like the way they look but I find them impractical in terms of keeping the bugs out and the pets in. And if not properly maintained or are poorly constructed and installed, they can be a right pain in the arse. But in this place they work. Actually everything in this place works for me (except the outside cupboard laundry), even the bathroom that's semi open to the master as the actual loo is tucked well away. The listing says this place will sell in the region of $2.2 million. I think it's a good buy in a great area. 

Doggos presumably not included.
