Lucy Feagins of The Designs Files to sell Brunswick cottage

The credentials of design blogger Lucy Feagins will be on show as the Brunswick home she shares with partner Gordon Johnson goes to auction this weekend.

The Victorian residence at 12 Nash Street has a single fronted cottage with one bedroom and one bathroom, with another one bedroom, one bathroom studio sitting at the back of the property.

Feagin and Johnson purchased the cottage in late 2007 for $335,000. According to a post on The Design Files, Feagins lived with her parents until the age of 27 to save for the purchase. The home, selling through Peter Stephens and Luke Chisholm of Nelson Alexander, is now listed with expectations of $640,000 to $690,000.

Photos of the property from 2007 show just how much work the couple have put into the home over the past six years.

As Feagins details in her blog, the extensive interior renovations included replacing the kitchen and bathroom and installing a toilet in the main house. She describes the construction of the house’s outdoor studio 18 months ago as the completion of her “dream project.”

The work of several young Australian artists is featured in the home, including pieces by Emily Ferretti, Kirra Jamison and Lucas Grogan.

Feagins launched The Design Files blog in 2008, covering architecture and interiors, arts, crafts, graphic design and illustration.
