A House on the Golf Links Estate, Camberwell

House, Golf Links EstateI've previously written several posts about the Golf Links Estate in the Melbourne suburb of Camberwell. The estate, as you may have guessed, is a wonderful pocket of interwar houses on a former golf course.

This house shows a great use of bricks as highlights and decoration. Look at the detail in the chimney and the keystone effects around the arched entrance. The eaves, both at the main roof and the small porch roof, are decorated with bricks and there are several rows of small bricks below the windows.

The low rendered wall has a healthy foundation of bricks and finally there is that feature decoration above the window.
