Tax time headache?
Let us crunch the numbers

Five beautiful Canberra residences?

By johnboy 17 December 2013 30

Property Observer is taking us through “five of the most gorgeous properties currently listed”.

I don’t think any of them will be troubled by Kevin McCloud.

I mean seriously. O’Malley twice?

They are taking votes but at the moment appear to only have two votes, one of which is mine, and I didn’t like any of them.


What’s Your opinion?

A contemporary version of Dante’s Inferno would have a Circle for those poor souls condemned to produce such puff pieces.

I bet “Jennife Duke” is not his/her real name!

I see your glossy, wide-angle-lensed, polished real estate photographs and raise you inexplicably bad property photographs:

You’re welcome.

Fun! I like the blue room best of all.

I would love one for the worst examples of real estatese, also known as sellglish.

For the same cash I’d say no, i’d much rather a solid 356 or 901.

Fair enough, I just think calling a 911 (of any vintage) undesirable is poor form, haha.

For early Porsches your choices are good. I’d like a 550 Spyder or a 904 please.

Erm, for $200k? Good luck with that.

Real 911’s are air cooled.

I love the way this has become an expensive broom-broom thread!

I’d quite like one of the last lot of Kombis being built in Brazil. No doubt they are super safe, too.

How can you own 5 Porsches, and yet not have one of the models that are actually desirable?

Huh?

You’d say no to a new 991 911? I wouldn’t!

I’d be pretty happy with a Boxster too as it happens.

Not many people make a sports coupe as well as Porsche.

Don’t care for the properties. Hate the website. Every object on the page is such a distraction that you quickly forget why you were looking at the page.

O’Malley, Canberra’s answer to good taste- not.
Most houses have a great view of Hindmarsh Drive and the proliferation of solar panels is most amusing, and ugly.

O’Malley is ugly and hot. Good luck selling those turkeys.

I often take visitors to O’Malley so that we can laugh at the triumph of money over good taste.

It seems any view these days has people getting all hot and excited, even if the view is of a bunch of grubby roofs with chimneys and industrial-looking metal stuff.

Domestic house design at present is truly awful.

I have just been over to South Australia staying in Hyde Park. If you don”t know Victoria Avenue, I recommend a streetview search. Pretty much any five houses in this avenue are better than the ones listed in the article.

Deref 5:43 pm 17 Dec 13

I didn’t bother to look at all of them, but I see one’s a flat and another’s a mock-Tuscan McMansion.

If they’re “beautiful”, then I’m a supermodel.

The only reason I’d give you more than 5 bob for four of them is to sell as quickly as possible. The Tennyson Ave property though does appear to qualify as a beautiful property. The other four are just ugly monstrosities so typical of a society that has very little real class or culture.

schmeah 4:56 pm 17 Dec 13

you could really get your creative juices flowing with all that white and beige. And I just loooooove tiles in the living room, so cozy.

That billiard table sounds suspiciously like the one the old Civic Workers Club used to have.

John Brown’s desk will surely be featured in the next breathlessly exciting, envy-inspiring instalment.

Is this your standard pickup line?

Well, us ladies don’t get to use pickup lines very often (if ever)……..and spoken for anyway….but, if I did, I more prefer something like “do you believe in love at first sight or do I have to walk by again?”

Swagger.

I am being serious with my point though, if I had to move back to Canberra I’d find it pretty much impossible to find a building with as many amenities/services as where I live in Sydney. Given the market, they should offer more for the $$ people pay (or have places that charge more to give people the option).
