One more while the novacaine wears off.
No, I'm not kidding. I went to the dentist this afternoon and half my face is still numb. Anyhoo....
This one here now is what just over 5 million Australian dollars gets you in South Yarra. Yeah, welcome to Australia kids, I hope you packed your piggy banks.
6 Fulham Ave, South Yarra VIC
This house was redesigned by John Wardle. He's apparently big in Melbourne. I don't doubt that, I've just never heard of him but probably the Melbourne folk haven't heard of Susan Rothwell, Stanley Lesiuk, Walter Barda etc so you know, swings and roundabouts and all that. I like this place a lot. It's not ostentatious but it's roomy and the parent's retreat in particular is special. What I particularly like about this place is attention to detail, especially when factoring in the younger residents. As the listing states: "Integrated desks, a children's library ladder, paper roller and crayon container reflect an emphasis on whole family enjoyment which is a Wardle signature."
Well played Mr Wardle, well bloody played. I bow to you.
