Step inside this picture-perfect Victorian country estate
Come take a tour of this incredible estate in rural Victoria.
New waterfront mansion sets staggering Aussie record
colossal sale of a new build in Manly has rocked the Sydney prestige market, where results keep getting bigger and better. The price for the luxury waterfront house, carved into the cliffs, is understood to be $35 million – a suburb record and the second-highest price for Sydney’s northern beaches.

The charming Windsor home bridging centuries of style
Linda Gregoriou’s house-hunting wishlist was anything but typical. The urbanist and designer was looking for a home within an hour-and-a-half’s drive of Sydney on a block with fertile soil. The property had to be located in a historic town, and most importantly, it had to be heritage-listed. Gregoriou is aware that the latter criteria are the antithesis of what most buyers are looking for, but she has a deep appreciation for Australia’s earliest buildings.

The historic Toorak home with storybook good looks
You could spend hours gazing at Tudor revival-style homes. The depth of character they possess is vast; their architectural heft and rock-solid bones disguised by storybook looks. Welcome to Clyne’s period loveliness, overlaid with a meticulous renovation where handsome, muscular stone finishes are leavened by splendid banks of banded windows and an open, convivial floor plan.

Converted Melbourne warehouse apartment an oasis in the bustling CBD
The first thing that hits you is the pin-drop quiet. Or, at least, the sudden absence of noise, as you breeze into the whole-floor apartment (550 square metres) off the bustling CBD laneway and close the door on the outside city din. Then you’re inevitably struck by the clean, modern beauty of the architect-crafted interiors.

Palm-Springs style home nestled in the forest boasts spectacular ocean views
It was love at first sight for owners Tom and Sonja Perri when they inspected this Palm Springs-style home at the foot of the Illawarra escarpment. “My heart stopped when we walked in there because the house is just so peaceful,” Tom says. “You feel like you’re a million miles away, up in the forest, but you can see the sea. You can be down at the beach in a couple of minutes but you can also be in Central on the express train in an hour and five minutes.”

Sprawling Southern Highlands estate like stepping on to a movie set
If you wanted your fill of lush Australian landscape, you could do worse than head towards Robertson in the NSW Southern Highlands. Here are escarpments, waterfalls and green plains gathering themselves up into rolling hills and forests. The farms are both picturesque and productive. Elemental beauty also abounds at Paloma Estate, whose (nearly) 40 hectares of land showcase a diversity of textures, levels and shades.
North Melbourne never once disappoints. Come here for excellent pubs, one of the best bakeries in Melbourne (no, not telling), and housing stock that is old, new, cutting-edge, or quirky.

It’s also close to everything – CBD, Vic Market, hospitals, higher education, the airport. You can even catch the AFLW at the superbly rejuvenated Arden Street ground.

Then there’s 52 Molesworth Street, something of a Shinboner special – something a little out of the ordinary. Victorian Terrace Renovation, Terrace Renovation, North Melbourne, New York Loft, Victorian Terrace, Come Here, Picket Fence

And all this for just $28 million, give or take a few mill.

Inside the 70s-inspired Sun Ranch hotel in Byron Bay
Nestled in the Byron Bay hinterland, where green rolling hills and vast blue skies appear straight out of a Yellowstone scene, Sun Ranch emerges as a sun-kissed sweet escape, affectionately nicknamed “the hotel of good times”. “We drew inspiration from the vibrancy of 1970s California, the rustic charm of spaghetti westerns, and the warmth of Mexican and Spanish designs,” explains Blakey, the former creative director and founder of fashion label One Teaspoon.

The old trees lining Hotham Road in Sorrento are hiding a secret. Behind them, off a little slip road, is the Mediterranean. Terralsole – taken to mean “the land towards the sun” – is the thoroughly apt name of this luminous home behind the whispering green giants.
