Okay, so is everybody here at my new blog address now? Should I do a head count? I hate to leave anyone behind, but I guess the stragglers will catch up with us eventually.
Thanks to all of you who updated the links on your blogrolls already! I’ll be giving away an Amazon gift card on Friday, so be sure to leave a comment on yesterday’s post if you haven’t already.
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve still got some kinks to work out here. Some posts are missing their photos, and lots of links are still pointing back toward the old site. But if you’re patient with me, I’ll work my way through all of them eventually, I promise.
Now. Take a look at this house. I found it when I was searching the MLS listings in Brisbane, Australia. The price is listed as “available on application,” which translates as “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.”
According to the MLS description:
A stunning “Donovan Hill” contemporary masterpiece built on a picturesque allotment featuring: a seamless flow of 5 bedrooms; parent’s wing with privacy; atrium styled outdoor room; 4 bathrooms; gourmet kitchen; 11 metre lap pool; massive backyard for family picnics, to entertain 100 friends or simply play some cricket; unique treehouse where children will play all day and allow some rest and relaxation time for parents; unique boxed concrete construction.
My favorite part is how the backyard is big enough to entertain 100 of your friends or play some cricket. (I may need to make a few new friends if I lived here. And learn cricket.)
Also, love that the treehouse will keep the children busy all day so the parents can get some rest and relaxation.
Check this place out:
Do you like it? My jaw dropped when I saw the soaring atrium.
It’s too modern and “industrial” for me with all that concrete, though. I wouldn’t want to actually live here. But I wouldn’t mind spending a few days here on vacation, playing cricket on the lawn with 100 of my closest friends. How about you?
Just a reminder to send me your best (worst) picture for our Fake Fotos Contest as soon as possible. I need a couple more if I’m going to show you mine. I’m not humiliating myself unless at least 10 of you do likewise! I mean it!
Tune in to “Top Design” on Bravo tonight. I’ll be posting my recap of it tomorrow (Thursday)!
