Now here is a plan I quite like. the living areas are at the back, to make the most use of the yard, and the car port, long enough to have two cars undercover, leads directly into the kitchen. And there's a fire-place!
I have been dreaming of a house with a fire-place - we don't need them here in North Queensland. Maybe it's time for a move? I found this house for sale while looking online - it's in the Victorian town of Benalla, where my folks live. It has a great chimney -
which unfortunately has an electric fireplace installed, but it does have another fireplace -
with wonderful mid-century lights and brick wall. The whole house is fairly original, and at only $300,000 for a four bedroom house, it's very tempting. See the listing here.
