The 11 cosiest living areas on the market

Is there anything better than snuggling up on the couch in front of a roaring open fire with hot chocolate with marshmallows in hand and a good Netflix series in front of you when the weather is cold, wet and miserable outside? We don’t think so!

As homeliness and warmth are essentials when it comes to searching for a suitable home, here are eleven of the cosiest living areas and lounge rooms currently on the market. The only question left to ask is 'how soon can we move in?!'.

1. Converted church, Daylesford, VIC. 

This divine living area showcases features of its former life as a church and its recent restoration into a modern unique home. The gothic windows, vaulted ceiling, modern light fittings, Persian rug and freestanding Lopi wood-heater combine to give the space a grand but also inviting feel.

2. Glam urban oasis, Paddington, NSW.

Looks like the perfect spot to laze away chilly winter nights for a casual movie session. The sheer recessed LED lit curtains and EcoSmart biofuel fireplace add warmth and beautiful focal points to this living area.

3. Vibrant solid brick Victorian cottage, Caulfield North, VIC.

The gorgeous original marble open fireplace paired with an oversized L-shaped couch with plenty of colourful scatter cushions and a reading lamp makes this the ultimate winter reading corner.

4. Sophisticated Californian Bungalow, Northcote, VIC.

The faux-fur throw, the velvet cushions, hand woven wool rug and the gas log fire are perfect ways to soften and warm up a sleek living space like this one.

5. Immaculate Queen Anne Federation home, Camberwell, VIC.

This elegant light filled sitting room featuring pretty leadlight windows, original fireplace, oak panelling and ornate ceilings looks like the ideal spot to peruse the Sunday paper over a cup of morning coffee.

6. Victorian Italianate mansion, Woollahra, NSW.

We can see it now: sipping an old fashioned cocktail curled up by the flickering warmth of this elegant marble fireplace. The only feature missing from this sophisticated setting in our opinion is a well stocked bar cart.

7. Contemporary architect designed residence, Maleny, QLD.

The tranquil hinterland views, light drenched reading nook, adjoining deck, open fireplace and cool mood lighting make this vast sitting area warm and welcoming.

8. Bespoke designer home, Collaroy, NSW.

You get the best of both worlds in this charming sunlit living room, where you don't have to choose between watching the stunning gas log fire or the wall mounted TV. 

9. Elegant tri-level waterfront mansion, Mosman, NSW. 

The warm colour scheme, plush cushions and shag pile rug work beautifully to create a comforting and soothing sitting area. 

10. Chic renovated Victorian home, Woollahra, NSW.

The only thing missing from this glam grey and white sitting area is you, a pack of your favourite biscuits and a hot cup of tea.

11. Double fronted Victorian, Birchgrove, NSW.

This spacious designer living area exudes a warm, cosy and calming mood thanks to the eco fireplace, comfy couch and fresh potted orchids.

We hope these cosy living rooms have given you some inspiration on how to make your home extra cosy this season. For more ways to dress up your place for the cooler month ahead take a look at these six autumn home decor trends.
