Queen Anne mini mansion in Albert Park

Original post 17 October 2019

Fantastic house in #StVincentPlace #AlbertPark by #FrederickDeGaris, who did some pretty OTT Italianate stuff, but here in 1893 went for an eclectic mix, #polychromebrick like the so-called #LombardicRomanesque, with round arched windows, the diagonal planning that was later so typical for Edwardian houses, and a wonderfully lacy complex #castironverandah. And that timber porch in the side over something that might have been a garage looks great, no idea if original. Also, great restoration, very nice #colourscheme.
