Well I must admit, when I saw this real estate listing pop up, it did tug at the heartstrings a bit! That’s because this sweet weatherboard cottage in Brunswick was, in fact, my first home! I lived here from 2007 until 2014, and boy, did I love this little house.
Though compact in size, this house packs a punch. It’s a freestanding Victorian, with windows all down one side, which means heaps of natural light, year round.
When Gordy and I lived here, we made quite a few updates. We built a new kitchen and bathroom, added lots of storage – but the biggest thing, was building the free standing studio out the back – aka, the original home of The Design Files! Looking out into the courtyard, this is where I would sit everyday, tapping away at my laptop, in the early days of TDF. The studio also has its own walk in robe and ensuite with shower – so it doubles as a bright and roomy second bedroom.
In my (biased) opinion, the house is smack bang in the BEST part of Brunswick – just 5 minutes walk from the bars and restaurants of Lygon st, aswell as Mediterranean Wholesalers and Sydney Road IGA (if you know, you know).
What can I say… this house will always hold a special place in my heart – could it be YOUR perfect pad, too?
