A fab example of #GeorgianRevival , with a bit of #Mannerist thrown in. This is the MH #Baillieu house in #OrrongRoad #Toorak , 1925, designed by #HaroldDesbroweAnnear , who started off radical Art&Crafts Edwardian, but moved on to this kind of thing in the 1920s, but a bit idiosyncratic, with those cute scrolled pediments and projecting arched door-hood thing, which was then repeated by others. This house has a large formal side and rear garden, and when it was being sold in the 90s i helped nominate it to the #VictorianHeritageRegister , which I thought was a shoe-in, but they said no ! The person who did the nomination (can’t remember who) didnt tell me that until after the appeal time was gone ! Luckily not changed now listed by #CityofStonnington.
