69 Mooltan St, Ascot Vale

69 Mooltan St, Travancore EstateThis is an interesting little house on the Travancore Estate in the Melbourne suburb of Ascot Vale. Recently, it could have been yours, for rent, for only $440 per week.

I like the flat roofed section at the front compared to the setback section with the conventional hipped roof. The low wall with brick detailing and the central rendered section is totally appropriate for the house. The line of bricks near the top of the wall above the entrance works well as does the brick decoration around the windows but I really don't know what is going on with the blue window frames.

This view shows how the moderne elements of the house and wall working well together and, if anything, highlighting how much the windows don't fit with the rest of house.
