I have a confession…
For the longest time, actually, since 1992, I have always wanted to live in a Terraced House.
When we looked in Tasmania before we moved here, there was a terraced house in Launceston which needed some love, but was divine. I took photos of it and returned to NSW to re-design, sketch, and mood board this baby in my vision.
It was a fun past time, but the reality was that we were looking at starting a family and I my other love, old Australian heritage homes was calling, and so we settled in the house we now call home.
But, lately, I have been thinking more and more about the terraced homes here in Launceston…and one is for sale! Don’t worry, I’m not buying it, but I have thought of arranging a look through…just to cure my ‘thing’ I have for these lovely homes
They have lovely French doors like this.
Well, this is actually in Paris…but they are just like this.
and the most amazing iron work ever.
Well, if you get one that has already been done up and renovated well.
These homes have there downfalls-
small kitchens, sometimes galley style
usually 2 bedrooms
not much of a backyard
….but I do love them so!
they are glorious!
the whole ‘sharing a wall’ thing is a worry too.
What happens if you get noisy neighbours?
For that reason, I would be after a detached terrace =0)
This middle terrace is the one which is for sale.
It does have a bit of a yard, but after living on just under an acre, I don’t think I could do this right now.
The boys would go stir crazy!
Maybe, this will be a retirement plan….a long way away.
I will watch the sale progress and see how it goes. It is still a lovely old lady and I am sure she will get an owner that will love her dearly.
It doesn’t mean my re-found addiction will go away though
…there are 5 more for sale!! ;0)
