So here's a roundup of the houses I looked at (and still remember, all over 900K):|
Woollahra - What, right across the road from the school, tiny, and it smells? Ha!
Woollahra - Nice townhouse, loads of parking, huge deck areas and lots of greenery. Traffic noise is non-stop.
Edgecliff - Ooh - nice-ish. Nicely presented - gorgeous wood floors, architect-y details, biggish bedrooms. No storage? OK, forget it.
Paddington - Pretty wood and stairs an what the hell is that room all blocked off for, and who died on this carpet? No parking, either, in an impossible neighborhood.
Darling Point - Ooh, an ex-brothel. See, there's the stairs up from the back lane, and the bedrooms have ante-rooms. Nice location. I don't have $1.4 milllion. Great house, though.
Glebe - Well, this is nice for a townhouse, in an inconvenient lane with not much else going for it. Not my style.
Annandale - Now this is appealing - garden, lovely original ceiling roses, weird little kitchen, strange dark rooms. And airplanes nearly touching the roof. Lovely! Leave it for the lesbians who came to look at the same time.
Balmain - This is really weird. A tiny two room shack with a whole extra house stapled to the back, with a nautical theme, all sailcloth and polished concrete and big yard and couldn't live in it, I'm afraid
Balmain - This one really looks like a pink doll house. "Queen Anne" style, I see, all of ten feet wide and three bedrooms? Where do you put your clothes? And do you want to climb so many sets of stairs?
Balmain - I love a sandstone house. A bit more spacious than the previous, but really, I still feel cramped. Pity.
Balmain/Rozelle - Finally! One I could love. No off-street parking, but it's quiet here. The house is a winner though, huge open living area downstairs, three big bedrooms upstairs and little courtyards at the side and back. Possible drawback is Dax and Weensie would definitely get out.
So there you have it. House hunting is exhausting. We'll find something.
My brain is back to normal, I think.
