New Castle

Beaconsfield Parade Middle Park – every man’s home is his Castle 😊. I suppose whoever built it was from there (the one in the uk I mean). Don’t know much about it except that it was built before 1895, so probably c1890 at the end of the land boom, and before there was much in this area, which was not really developed until after 1900. I can say that there’s very few 19thC castle style houses in Melbourne- there’s Gothic but not so much turreted things like this. I can also say there’s not much left inside, and it’s worth a LOT.
