Mock Tudor Toorak no 4.

Some more #MockTudor ‘residential shops’ on #ToorakRoad, right next to #SouthYarraStation, a bit dominated by the #highrise clustering behind. Found an article about them – built 1935, designed by Oliver Dixon, ‘in the #OldEnglish style’ – not as ornate as others but the #oldeworlde #leadlight #shopfronts are completely intact ! And oddly transparent in this light, not really holding up the first floor – which was bedrooms, with the dining and kitchen rear ground floor (no lounge ?). In Toorak Road heritage precinct, graded A2.

Update May 2021:

So these great shops in Toorak Road that I snapped in Jan 2019 are up for sale, as an investment or ‘redevelopment subject to council approval’ – since they’re graded Contributory in a #heritageprecinct, you couldn’t demolish completely, but you could certainly take off the back wings and build apartments.

Update June: sold for $13 mill.
