AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

that house is really nice. definitely classically modern. hope all is well.

btw, that walk (post below) in the sunlight would be great with that view of the city.

This home looks like it was from 100+ years ago, along with an English garden out front. The sepia reinforces the classic style, as if an early photographer took a picture of timeless beauty. Nice!

What an unexpected mix of styles and textures - gingerbread trim, stylized, multi-hued bricks, a picket fence. Even the tree bark is textured and busy. A very interesting looking house.

I like the wooden lace. People in the olden days spend so much effort on artistic things like lace.
