Roseville – Gingerbread Hamptons (Sold)

w1920-h1080-w1600-h1200-2012970649_1_pi_160805_010619

40 Trafalgar Avenue, Roseville.  No doubt this Arts & Craft gingerbread cottage has been remodelled extremely well in that fashionable Hamptons way.  It reeks of expensive candle scents,  a good use of the Dyson upright with hardly a stray cavoodle hair in sight.

It has almost 5 bedrooms, well, rich people are breeding a lot these days,  sign of being wealthy is more children than average.  One bedroom downstairs and the remaining 4 upstairs. Either the snorer stays downstairs or its used for the invalid in the family.  There is always someone sick who can’t get upstairs.  It would be thoughtful of this homeowner to always mention that.  “We can take care of Great Aunt Lizzy,  we have that bedroom downstairs you know.. so ideal for taking care of the old treasure.”

Dining rooms are a bit passe these days.  More relaxing rooms, media rooms and reading areas are better than cold, old dining suites.   I like the small afternoon tea area with giant orchid.

The kitchen is dated.  Needs that pale oaky floorboard look with bespoke exotic handles and giant octopus looking taps.   French-style which is Hamptonsy-looking as well.  Style is so interchangeable.

Auction on 27th August.  giddy-up.
