Personality plus, inspired liveability, a happy place, the yellow.home is love at first sight.

You'll be hooked, the moment you spot the yellow front door, vintage lettering, white railing and adorable awning!

The yellow.home is everything that is quintessentially inner north. Effortlessly cool, eclectic, filled with personality, and perfect exactly as it is, while ready to grow and adapt if you ever thought it needed to.

Its 1960s facade speaks to its vintage, a simpler time, yet enduring in its style. Exactly the character that we love, deep orange bricks, huge windows that let the sun pour in, welcoming front porch with decorative metal railing, framing the joy to be found inside.

The yellow.home is a three bedroom footprint cleverly modernised and redesigned to deliver an efficient living environment that thoughtfully extends living to a the outdoors by the beautiful covered pergola and verdant green landscaped grounds.

Right now Downer is the place to be, the suburb of choice. It's edgy and it's got attitude. The light rail has elevated its position and connectivity to the city, the local shops a vibrant hub generating a new energy and community spirt. The extensive urban renewal in Dickson enhances a precinct that is already a melting pot of culture and community
