City mouse or country mouse?

Are you a city mouse or a country mouse? These two houses are currently for sale here in Victoria - one is an inner-city abode and the other a beach/country house on the Mornington Peninsula about an hours drive from Melbourne. I really like the beach/country house myself, but if you had to choose, which would it be?

Look what lays behind the non-descript facade of the city house...

(Isn't that bedroom wall just crying out for a piece of art to be hung from it! It looks too bare as is.)


And here's a taste of the beach/country house...

Hi Lee
I am definitely country mouse. I like Mornington house. Very clean. very neat, very simple. "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" Hope you are enjoying your day!!

Because both houses are so lovely I think I'd choose city mouse for week days and country mouse for weekends!

I'm drawn to the country house. Despite being a city girl I am so wishing for a tree change, like everyone. I'm only doing the city thing for my boys school. Country, hands down! A-M xx
