One day on my way to Hawthorn for a catch up with the girlfriends I stumbled across an open inspection and auction next door to my friend’s apartment. I’ve always liked having a sneak peak into houses to see how they’ve been dressed and decorated so I told the girls to meet me at the beautiful double fronted Victorian next door. The interior and exterior was exquisite. I loved everything about it including the espaliered lemon tree and the grapevine-covered pergola. The huge kitchen windows looked out onto the beautifully landscaped backyard and inside, I absolutely loved the black & white colour scheme with touches of seductive reds. Almost put up my hand to place a bid…lucky I didn’t – it went for millions!
