I do feel a bit lucky to waking past something like this on the way to the local Dr ! #EildonMansion, built in 1872, designed by #JosephReed of #ReedAndBarnes, an enlargement of an earlier house. This is actually the ‘back’, the other side is more elaborate and originally faced huge lawns and gardens half way to the beach. I remember when it was an old man #boardinghouse in the late 80s, and in another fortunate event it was bought in 2007 by the @alliancefrancaise_melbourne, so you can just walk in ! I just wish it didn’t have cars parked in front, though I see a couple of annoying trees in front have been removed since 2017.
