On the Market: Life-Style by the Beach

Early morning walks in bare feet on warm golden sand,
nibbling vanilla icecream as the sun turns crimson 
over a glistening blue bay at sunset,
then strolling a few streets home to this stylish abode in an inner city suburb.
Sounding like a tempting lifestyle so far?
Tucked around the corner from Elwood beach
is this uber-stylish 2 storey home which is on the market.
It's a blank canvas, 
with white walls, polished timber floors & richly patterned stone finishes.
And a fabulous Eucalyptus & palm filled courtyard.
And the thought strikes me...
one would need a fabulous collection of swimsuits, 
to fully appreciate having a beach 
just around the corner.
Perhaps a floral, romantically inspired one piece.
Or a classic blue & white striped bikini?
 Hmmm....I think I could manage this kind of lifestyle.
Close enough to the city for theatres & art galleries,
large enough for a green courtyard,
stylish enough to be a retreat from the busy world,
and above all, around the corner from the beach.

Would you like to live here?

    Love that fab backyard with all those wonderful palms and with the gravel, makes a great tropical garden. The house is wonderful, and those cossies, to die for.

    Hello Virginia:
    The more we read here, the more appealing it became. Within the last few days it has turned very much colder with night time temperatures well below freezing and although the days are sunny, they are cold. So, the thought of this house, of golden sands, of warm water.......!

  8. Virginia, you make anything sound tempting ... gorgeous post!!

    Sign me up! :)

  10. The beach I can take or leave but the palm filled courtyard is my cup of tea, I love large windows looking out to any kind of greenery.

  11. And what luxury to have so much space around such a lovely instrument, too, so it should be a joy to play music in such a room. Vxx

  12. Yes indeed - my, that would be luxurious to have a holiday house so close to the city - what fun it would be for people coming in from interstate  or overseas. Best of both worlds. V xx

  13. Hi Jessie. I'll come to your dinner party in the garden - I can just imagine how elegant it would be. V xx

  14. It's a stunner, the back garden isn't it Mel? So simple really, just a few gum trees and lots of palm trees but it looks so dramatic. Vxx

  15. Oh dear, sounds like winter is fast approaching, nay is here, then Jane & Lance? So yes, I see this would seem like some bizarre dream, of warm water and warm sand underfoot. Sending you warm thoughts from our sandy shores. V xx

  16. Thank you Mariana, you are too kind! This made me laugh! V xx

  17. Hello Heather! Mmmm.... I thought you might like this one! V xx

  18. Yes me too, essential to my sanity actually, to have large windows looking out onto greenery. V xx
