From edgy warehouse conversions, modern masterpieces and revamped Victorians, we see many examples of exceptional Australian architecture daily for sale and rent on homely.

We thought it’d be interesting to do a retrospective of the most striking homes that sold in 2017.

Without further ado, here are the most popular and astonishing homes featured on homely’s Instagram in the past 12 months.

1. Waterfront wow-factor.

With its jaw-dropping waterfront position and Middle Harbour views, it’s no wonder this was our most liked home of the year. Some of ‘The Bluff’s’ luxury features include a private jetty, a Spanish mosaic tiled swimming pool and underfloor heating. It sold in June for a tidy $6 million and was later rented out for $3,100 a week.

2. Flawlessly renovated Edwardian.

Elegant from every angle, this attractive four-bedroom property sold in April for $2,575,000. Part of this home’s success can be attributed to the respect with which its period features were lovingly restored, a separate garden studio space and the lush Jaye Metcalf designed landscaping.

Sold in August for $2,515,000, this incredibly tranquil property features not one but two luxurious three-bedroom European inspired villas on 6 acres of park-like surrounds. But that’s not all! The magnifique property has an orchard, grape vines and a saltwater swimming pool. Perfection!
