Victorian villa, Burnett Street St Kilda

Nice big Victorian house in #BurnettStreetStKilda with a bit more richness than usual – double height arcaded verandah, with barleycorn columns and balustrading, including under the window ledges, which have cast iron frills too. Colours a bit gaudy – they are heritage colours but the Victorians would not have painted it two different colours, they didn’t paint cement render wall, it’d be either render grey, or maybe limewash ochre, or possibly rose. Think it’s a boarding house, no sales, and that notice is ‘to all visitors’.
