113 Wellington Street, St Kilda, Vic 3182
One of St Kilda’s most innovative homes is now for sale, priced at $6.7 – $7.3 million. This five-storey glass house seems like it’s showcasing luxurious living for the world to see, but it’s surprisingly private thanks to automated sheer and blackout blinds. The property was designed as a multi-generational home, with each of the four bedrooms ‘its own studio apartment’.
The centre of the home is another glass confection: a three-storey, glass-topped void providing some breathing space and connecting the kitchen with the rest of the house. There’s so much that is unique about this building, from the six-car garage on the ground floor to the high-speed, eight-person lift.

A Sydney home that last sold for $51,000 is back on the market – after 50 years! When Frank and Suzanne Davidson bought the 354sqm property in 1972 that was a decent chunk of cash, but today their Victorian character home is going to auction with a price guide of $8 million.
In the midst of a series of renovations, the two-level home’s historic features have been lovingly preserved in nearly every room. A double lounge at the front of the house displays that beautiful Victorian detail in crystal chandeliers, intricate medallions, high ceilings, and even a marble fireplace. The kitchen is significantly more modern, with concertina folding glass doors letting out onto the deck and a substantial granite breakfast bar. Surrounded by potted shrubs and beautifully private, the poolside deck is the perfect spot to enjoy a lazy afternoon.

Hidden away on one of Hobart’s most desirable streets, a Victorian Gothic façade hides a surprisingly modern home. First built in 1878, ‘Vernon’ is a five-bedroom, two-storey house set in the middle of 1,814sqm of picturesque grounds. From the outside, a tower, chimneys, detailed timber gables, double-hung windows and a delicate blue roof hint at what’s inside.
A grand entry reveals high ceilings, hardwood floors, and a sweeping staircase, with a contemporary chandelier as a striking counterpoint. Formal dining and living rooms can be found on either side, where old and new blend harmoniously in a way that can only be described as elegant. It’s hard to put a price on such an incredible property, and that’s why the owners are currently seeking expressions of interest, ending tomorrow at 5 pm.
