House Stalking | Melbourne Manor

Do you ever come across a house tour in a magazine or online (or at your neighbour's, two doors down on the left) and just think: "YES"?

Like, YES, I love everything about this place.

     YES, I would like to move in immediately, please.

          YES, I WANT EVERYTHING, THANKYOUVERYMUCH.

YES, was my first thought when I came across this quirky, crazy villa in Melbourne, Australia. First thought, last thought and middlemiddlemiddle: YES PLEASE!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for this awsmazing Aussie manor house... which totally doesn't rhyme and actually sounds pretty lame, but you get the idea.


Gothic-inspired Victorian exterior? Check. WITH ITS OWN FLAG? Check.



Bright and airy family kitchen with counter stools I'm lusting after? Check.



Eclectic living room with a rubbed brass chandelier and totally pulling off a zebra rug? Yeah... Check.



Bathroom with top hat pendant lights? Chehhhhhhhck.



Games room with.... wait, a games room? CHECK! The bookshelf room dividers are pretty cool, too.



Breezy master bedroom that looks like it could sleep roughly 14 people? Checkity-check.



The coolest den ever, complete with a comic-book inspired pendant light (which, let's be honest, rocks.) Check!



Master bath that LOOKS LIKE A NIGHTCLUB??? CHECKCHECKCHECK!!!

Seriously, check that window treatment... and that lighting... and that tile! I die.
