Downsizing..



When I get old and this big old garden of mine gets too much for me to handle..any day now :) I wouldn't mind downsizing into one of these beautifully restored old cottages, or something similar, check out those gorgeous details. Downsizing in 'size' to certain areas in Perth, or anywhere I guess, doesn't equate to downsizing in price, at well over the million dollar mark, it would have to be my house and a lotto win :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

  1. Impressive architecture! Those balcony railings are quite photogenic, aren't they?

  2. You would want a balcony for the view and photo opportunities :)

  3. Oh, it would be delightful to live in one of these units. Yes, winning the lottery would be wonderful. I would be history here if that were the case.

  4. Nice house but you would be too good for the rich people.

  7. Oh yes, these are gorgeous. Looks like a very nice place to live and with that price tag it must be. How on earth did real estate prices get so outrageous. My first house cost $18.000. You can't even get a decent car for that anymore.

  9. Very handsome houses. Originally they would have been quite dark inside, but I would bet they are not now, probably having been opened up at the rear.

    1. Looking at the photo again, I think they are in Subiaco, no? If so, one of my friends owns one of those little houses as an investment property!

  15. Over a million AU$ for one of these? It's the same in most American cities and I simply can't understand where the buyers with that kind of money come from.

  19. oh my goodness these are so pretty! i could definitely "downsize" into one of these!

  20. They are beautiful!

    There's much to be said for downsizing. As much as I'd like to have a house in the country with lots of space to accommodate any and all birds and other critters needing a home, Collin and I have a small apartment, not in the city, but close enough to restaurants and retail that we can walk where we're going most of the time. The other advantage is that when repairs are needed, we just call maintenance. No waiting weeks for a repairman, no extra expense.

  21. Beautiful, Grace.
    I just can´t imagine having a bbq on such a balcony?

  23. These are gorgeous. While in Sydney I used to live in house like those in the pictures. It was on Burke Street right across from Green Park in Darlinghurst.

  24. Ha! I wonder how many bathrooms are in those units.:-)

  25. Looks like a pretty place to live.
    But will you not miss your garden??
    And will you (promise) to paint at least one wall inside, bright RED or another great colour. We better go for the lottery, me up in the north and you Down Under... ha-ha :-)
