Beach House Decks Part 2

Ciao to all you fellow outdoor lovers. 

As promised, I am posting again today about the way us Northern Beach Combers live for about 8 months of the year.  That is, on our decks.  Mosquitos aside, it is a healthy and all together wonderful way to spend those balmy evenings, at the Beach House in Summer.

Australian entrants, such as the extremely talented man that is everywhere, Jamie Durie, do not win medals at the Chelsea Flower show for nothing.  Home renovation is a national past time here in Oz and as I mentioned yesterday, the outdoor space in an Australian home, is perhaps the most coveted.

The Aussies did not exhibit at Chelsea in 2009, owing, I guess to the GFC. Not surprisingly, their absence was duely noted by Her Majesty The Queen.

So, with such a glowing reference from Liz and in the interests of sharing the love and warmth that is the Australian outdoors, here are a few gorgeous shots of some Northern Beaches exterior spaces.

Ok, I admit it's been a lazy post. It has nothing to do with my own work and I have lifted the photos from elsewhere, but how could I not share this stunning beauty with you.  All these homes have either been sold recently or are currently for sale.  Find them on if your are in the market for a home in paradise.
