Over in Australia's New South Wales, this turn-of-the-century home with interiors that look plucked out of a shelter magazine is on the market for $3.63M. According to the Wall Street Journal, the owners, a surfboard manufacturer and music agent, bought the 3,122-square-foot manse in Byron Bay for $2.7M in summer 2010, and, shortly after, dropped some $520K swankifying the interiors—"We wanted it to be moody and atmospheric"—embarking on a Euro-centric remodel that ultimately garnered the digs a feature in Vogue Australia. After earning these credentials, it (like many homes to grace the pages of glossies) hit the listings in October 2012, flaunting its historic Australian shell and contemporary interiors.
Decor highlights of the five-bedroom: hardwood floors stained a dark gray, a '50s-style "egg chair," a "bird-themed" bedroom, a claw-foot tub, and replicas of vintage mirrors. In the backyard sits a saltwater pool, covered barbecue and an office space that sits apart from the main house. It's all above.
