House hunting.....!!!

If anyone out there wants to purchase a Victorian heritage property.
A property that would make  a wonderful family home in the country or a smashing bed and breakfast with the addition of a bathroom or two or three for the 8 bedrooms
A home with 14 rooms if I count  the outside loo with its black and white tile floor and marble step
Let me tell you it is going cheap!!!

Now if that person would turn up very soon I will not miss out on this next time it comes on the market!!!!

Sitting on a smallish block in the prettiest town. I could do some serious cooking in this kitchen

Oh what blogs would be written in here and morning coffee would be a treat when you come to visit

I love the french doors but the garden could do with some colour and some pots. I would ask flwjane for some tips on what to plant for picking

and of course the red door won me straight away (I just cannot resist a red door!)

the bathroom, I am totally in love with it. I just love the use of the ripple iron and french doors out to the garden...what heaven!

They could leave it furnished as it even has my great love, a worn brown leather chair...oh bliss!!

and that slab wall!

There is a loft bedroom which I think would have to be mine with that beautiful ceiling

The raw timber deck is already turning silver and I would have to talk to Renee about the perfect furniture for here

So as soon as I find the right people to buy our family home and turn it into a family home again (or B & B)
this is what I am looking for.
Just to make sure that there are some slightly more upbeat posts here I thought I would share with you some of the homes I find that appeal to me. I will try and be reasonable but occasionally I fall in love with something  so outrageously not suitable that I can't show the children (they do worry that Mother might be losing it!!)
so I will share those with you too. You understand house love!!!!!

 Now I just need you to find me a buyer with about half a million dollars  ( the house does need a bit of work!) and we are rocking

happy house hunting
