Aaaaaand it’s that time of year again! That special and merry and expensive and tiring and blisteringly hot period of the year: Christmas! And as December 25th rears its head, so too does Santa down the chimney of every household in the country (or if you don’t have a chimney, he just breaks a window).
Temperatures can often get above 40°C at Christmas, when even the lightest bed-sheet makes it feel like you’re in your own human-size Sous Vide machine, so with that, spare a thought for the jolly St. Nick as he squeezes his rotund rear down the chimney of these…wait for it…Top Santa-Friendly Properties For Sale!
That’s right, it’s fireplaces galore in this post. Hang your stockings, set down a plate of cookies and glass of milk and wait for Santa to come down these beautiful fireplaces in Melbourne and Sydney, all of which are on the market.
When he does come down, hold him ransom until he gives you all the presents you always wanted as a child but your parents couldn’t possibly get for you, like a unicorn.

Sydney’s northern beaches have some of the most beautiful properties on the market, but that may be because of the views they enjoy.
