Melbourne House of Heather Nette King

Heather

After months of dragging a toddler and a baby in and out of the car at open-home inspections, Heather Nette King, a freelance interiors writer and stylist, and her husband Jeremy, advertising consultant, were fed up with house-hunting and almost didn’t bother to take a look inside this old weather-boarder in Armadale, Melbourne, Australia. But luckily they did, because the century-old character-filled house was exactly what the couple had been dreaming of – high ceilings with intricate plaster cornices, a wide entrance hall, big bedrooms and a deep bull-nose veranda. “But best of all, it had only been moderately renovated – it was totally liveable, but still retained its romance and charm,” Heather says. Within five minutes the couple had negotiated with the agent, and secured it as their new family home.
