Little Cravings

Eric feels Carrington is a destination. Just outside the city – its edgy – in more ways than one.

As you wander down Young Street in Carrington, the funky sounds and irresistible smells coming from the colourful restaurant at Antojitos almost levitate your body and carry you over to the menu. Homemade tortillas and salsa, tasty simple food.

A salty breeze blew in the air as the fading light of a beautiful Autumn day in Newcastle bounced off these historic King Street buildings.

Illuminating the beautiful brick and sandstone of 8 King Street, a solid structure in the centre of the CBD.

Positioned at the beginning of King Street, the artery of Newcastle.

The historic Eastside Apartments sit proudly among modern structures, glowing in their rich heritage.

As I entered the private courtyard, I was awed by the feeling of antiquity that abounds; perfectly juxtaposed with a myriad of accents, as the flow of community and culture passed by the street.

This home in the heart of Newcastle East is beating to the rhythm of rich, cultural energy.

Sunlight and a sea breeze take you from the exclusive private courtyard into the bright open plan living area.

This is where relaxed outdoor courtyard lifestyle blends with homely comforts in the lounge and dining area.

An interior and location that is both beachy and urban in one.

The master bedroom with its large walk in closet and ensuite, benefits from courtyard light streaming into the room…

Two convenient bathrooms with large shower and storage are adjoined to both bedrooms.

The second bedroom is the perfect extra room or could be utilised as a office or library for those that only require one bedroom.

The laundry and linen are neatly designed into the hallway leading from the dining room to the kitchen.

In a city apartment this full sized kitchen is a pleasant surprise, perfect for the entertainer or masterchef.

The people at Villager are all people persons.

They are very enthusiastic about their work.

They always put their clients first, working with them, not for them.

They are all keen to go the extra mile.

They show absolute respect for their clients.

They are positive, interesting people.

They tailor their support according to the individual needs and interests of each client.
