This is another house on the Golf Links Estate in the Melbourne suburb of Camberwell.
The house has interesting highlights in red brick against the mainly white building. The garden is arranged on several tiers with 'crazy paving' retaning walls and the letterbox looks like it could be at home in any English country lane.
The view along the side of the house reveals the original concrete driveway leading to the portico. The driveway have originally had grass between the two concrete tracks but has been infilled with more 'crazy paving'.
A peep at the back of the house revealed a lovely little garage but I couldn't see how they could get a car to it with some new gates behind the portico.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
