Repost this day 2018 when I made the effort to search out notable Edwardian houses :
A fabbo house and surgery for Dr Armstrong built 1904, and designed by #UssherandKemp. I’ve known this one for ever, standing prominently on #CanterburyRoad Canterbury, no trees, so always quite visible, all the woodwork was white. It was a hostel at the time.
Then in the early 80s, it became the home of #gargoylesanddragons, the business that made terracotta pieces that melbournians loved to add to their Edwardian homes – like the one here. They moved on maybe c2000 ? (still going too) and I guess it then became a home again, and got this lovely Edwardian colour scheme, lots of browns and reds, toning well with the #redbrick that characterised #FederationQueenAnne. Pity about the cars.
