Whether your tastes are for the textured sandstone walls of a historic Sydney home, or lean more towards the smooth polished concrete of a brand-new Melbourne luxury home, there’s something for everybody in this list of six must-see new listings to hit the market.
Classic meets contemporary in Melbourne
Built circa 1920 and a short stroll away from the prestigious Kooyong Village, Bonaventure harmoniously blends the home’s classic features with sleek modern living.
Elegant white and dove grey interiors showcase soaring vaulted ceilings, open fireplaces, a marble kitchen and bay windows to create the ideal setting for seeing out the winter months.
The backyard is where the home’s prestige shines with a full-sized Mod grass tennis court, infinity-edge pool, spa and outdoor entertainment area and fireplace.
A slice of history in Sydney
This 6.8-metre-wide sandstone terrace stands proud in a row of Darlinghurst’s finest historic homes on Palmer Street.
The home was originally built in 1860 as a manse to home a minister of the nearby church, but has been thoughtfully renovated to retain its heritage while providing the comforts of modern living.
The original sandstone of the home has largely been conserved and provides warmth and texture to not only the facade, but as a feature wall in the home’s kitchen. Otherwise, the interiors are classic and calming with dark wood floorboards and white walls providing the ideal canvas for the lucky new owners.
Over 800 hectares of rural retreat in South West Slopes
Sprawling Neringah has been renovated into a southern slopes treasure. The colonial Georgian-style house sits on 890 hectares of highly regarded farmland used by the current owners for sheep and cattle breeding.
The estate’s highlights have to be its tree-lined driveway, manicured topiary gardens, verandahs and a sun-drenched courtyard that beautifully frame the two-storey homestead. Inside, the home is vibrant with natural light with a practical, country feel.
Brand-new modern luxury in Melbourne
This sleek, newly built home isn’t your typical beach house. Only metres from Brighton Beach, the four-bedroom home was designed by acclaimed architect Martin Friedrich as a sophisticated retreat.
Marble features prominently in the kitchen and all three bathrooms. There’s a three-oven kitchen complete with Gaggenau appliances, an 860-bottle glass-fronted insulated cellar, and a garden steam room.
The home’s rooftop has views of the bay and is ripe for catching the fireworks over the Melbourne CBD during New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Sunlit entertainer in Sydney
Located in the centre of Lane Cove is a cluster of streets named after the Greek alphabet – Beta Road, Zeta Road, Gamma Road, Alpha Road and Delta Road. Locals know it to be one of the most desirable parts of the area to live in due to its beautiful homes and close proximity to Lane Cove Village.
And this entertainer on Alpha Road is no exception.
The bungalow-style property is described as low maintenance by the current owners with a built-in pool cleaning system and automatic law sprinklers. The timber entertaining deck has a barbecue kitchen, heating and wine fridge to make any outdoor entertaining a breeze.
Picture-perfect renovation in Adelaide
If you’re on the hunt for a home that ticks each trend-led design box, then look no further than this three-bedder in Adelaide’s south.
Millennial pink subway tiles, french doors, herringbone timber floors, statement skylights and pastel green wood panelling feature in interiors that would look at home in a magazine.
The backyard entertaining deck is a highlight of the home. There’s a brass-toned woodfire oven, shaded pergola and decoratively tiled garden beds to delight your guests.
