A stunning Palatial House Snoop find this week lands us in Balmain located in Sydney's Inner West on an 'arm' of land jutting into the beginnings of the Sydney Harbour and a stone's throw from the CBD. This home is a fabulous example & execution of fusing contemporary and period architecture & design with integrity & style. Not to mention how much I love the pool, deck and seamless glass fencing and the use of the original period arches in the main living spaces.
So gorgeous... Take a look!
