On the Market: A Gardener's Retreat in the City

What happens when a brilliant landscape designer
places his mark on an old Victorian terrace house?

There is beautiful detail in every corner, 
that's what happens.

This is the home of landscape architect 
Rick Eckersley, from Eckersley Garden Architecture,
and it is currently on the market.

Despite being in an inner-city location, 
snuggled next to the bay,
this property has a sense
of a garden oasis in the city.

It's a beautiful retreat from the busy world outside.

Would you like to live here?

Property location: 2/368 Beaconsfield Pde, St Kilda West, Melbourne
Agents details.

    Wow - what a stunning looking home, very European. Great to see it's local.

  11. Since this is probably my dream home, right down to the Balinaise statue in the garden, I would say, thank you to whomever is willing to buy this for me. A big thank you....

  12. Ooh yes, I could liver here purely for those walls of ivy. They seem almost 'other wordly' and European. I would love to waste away a few hours out there with a book!
