Australian furniture designers Pop and Scott sell dreamy Dromana house

A vintage mansion has been transformed into a painfully cool bohemian retreat that’s like an ‘eternal vacation’ when you step through the front door.

Scott Gibson and Poppy Garbin fell in love with the dreamy Dromana property as tenants before buying it from their landlord and updating its quaint but dated retro look.

The couple, owners of sustainable furniture and lighting company Pop and Scott, spent three years restoring the 1970s home nestled in the granite mound of Arthurs Seat on the Mornington Peninsula, VIC.

The result of their efforts is a four bedroom fairytale complete with wooden ceilings, a landscaped garden on two levels, breathtaking views and a spectacular 40 step sculptural staircase that winds its way up the side of the house.

Living in the house “feels like you’re on vacation every day of the year,” according to de realestate.com.au list.

The couple, who have three young children, have retained original features where possible and brought the house into the 21st century with cosmetic changes such as removing the 1980s staircase and replacing them with a set of open-threaded wooden steps.

They also redesigned the front yard and removed old windows to bring in more light.

Due to the changes, the top floor now enjoys the best of the morning sun, while the master bedroom offers ‘incredible views’ of the bush.

The dream home on a 1,622 sq. ft. block will go under the hammer on Saturday, October 30 for offers in excess of $1,495 million (AUD) — $300,000 more than the average price of a four-bedroom in the area.

Nancy Crupi of real estate agency YPA Dromana told Daily Mail Australia that in her 30-year career she has “never seen a house attract so much interest”.

“Hundreds of people have been there to view it, we even had the owners relocate for a few days to facilitate more inspections,” she said.

‘We had to put two brokers on the house, that’s how great the demand was.’

According to broker Elke Remscheid, the listing received more than 165 applications online after less than two weeks.

With Australian property prices rising at their fastest pace since the late 1980s, owners have decided to make money as demand for homes in regional areas within a short drive of a capital city rises.

The family of five moves to Western Australia to another 1970s house in a large forest block they plan to renovate after a well-deserved break.

Record low interest rates have set home price records in 88 percent of Australia’s property markets, with coastal regional areas outperforming capitals as more professionals started working from home, eliminating the need to live in major cities.

In August, house prices hit new peaks in 69 of Australia’s 78 real estate submarkets, based on a grouping of suburbs and cities.

Detached houses with a garden are in particular in demand, as a result of which the number on the market has fallen.

A survey by home price data provider CoreLogic found that in August 2018 there were 153,803 homes for sale across Australia. At the end of August 2021, there were only 88,872 homes on the market, a drop of more than 42 percent.

But financial experts warn that prices in suburban areas could fall by 20 percent, while apartment values ​​could drop by as much as a third when the boom inevitably ends.

Aussie Home Loans founder John Symond said he fears prices have risen “too far, too fast” and called them “insane.”

A 20 percent drop in some suburbs would plunge Sydney’s average home price by $258,690, from an all-time high of $1,293 million, while a similar catastrophe in Melbourne would drop prices by $190,900, from $954,496.

But if buyer interest in the Dromana Retreat is anything to go by, the bubble will remain intact for now.
