Is there anything better than snuggling up on the couch in front of a roaring open fire with hot chocolate with marshmallows in hand and a good Netflix series in front of you when the weather is cold, wet and miserable outside? We don’t think so!

As homeliness and warmth are essentials when it comes to searching for a suitable home, here are eleven of the cosiest living areas and lounge rooms currently on the market. The only question left to ask is ‘how soon can we move in?!’.

1. Converted church, Daylesford, VIC. 

This divine living area showcases features of its former life as a church and its recent restoration into a modern unique home. The gothic windows, vaulted ceiling, modern light fittings, Persian rug and freestanding Lopi wood-heater combine to give the space a grand but also inviting feel.

2. Glam urban oasis, Paddington, NSW.

Looks like the perfect spot to laze away chilly winter nights for a casual movie session. The sheer recessed LED lit curtains and EcoSmart biofuel fireplace add warmth and beautiful focal points to this living area.
