A Large Queen Anne Style Villa - Moonee Ponds
This wonderful concoction of Arts and Crafts timber fretwork, gabled return verandah, terracotta finials and complex rooflines of red tiles at varying angles appear on a grand red brick Edwardian villa built in the Melbourne suburb of Moonee Ponds.
Standing proudly behind a white picket fence with finial capped newel posts, this sprawling villa was built around the turn of the Twentieth Century in the popular Queen Anne style, which was mostly a residential style inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement in England, but also encompassed some of the more stylised elements of Art Nouveau, which gave it an more decorative look. The red brick from which the villa is built is in keeping with the Arts and Crafts movement, as are the half-timbered bargeboards underneath the gables. Yet the curling fretwork of the wide return verandah, the latticework of the gables and the upper stained glass panels of stylised flowers in the bay window are Art Nouveau in design.
Queen Anne style was most popular around the time of Federation. With complex roofline structures and undulating facades, many Queen Anne houses fell out of fashion at the beginning of the modern era, and were demolished.
Houses built in this style were often referred to as "Reformist houses" because they challenged the formality of the mid and high Victorian styles that preceded it, and were often designed with uniquely angular floor plans. This is a good example of one, as the front door is set to the far right of the verandah, whilst a secondary door appears at the other end of the return, suggesting an unusual layout dispite a central hallway.
Moonee Ponds, like its neighbouring boroughs of Ascot Vale and Essendon, was etablished in the late 1880s and early 1890s. However, unlike its neighbours, it was an area of affluence and therefore only had middle-class, upper middle-class and some very wealthy citizens. Grand villas like these would have suited a large affluent Edwardian family, and would have required a small retinue of servants to maintain. This property has a large street frontage, and has a wonderful garden of well kept lawns, with a connifer hedge.
"Park Lodge" a Victorian Mansion - Moonee Ponds
Built in the 1880s, "Park Lodge" is a very grand asymmetrical Victorian mansion situated in the finest section of the inner northern Melbourne suburb of Moonee Ponds.
Built of polychromatic bricks, "Park Lodge" has a wonderful verandah and balcony adorned with elegant cast iron lacework. The roof is made of slate tiles with metal capping. The brown and yellow bricks are constructed in a profusion of geometric designs, which even make the wall treatment a great feature. Even the chimney is built of polychromatic bricks. Perhaps its most outstanding features are the distinctive French inspired Second Empire mansard roofed central tower which bears "Park Lodge's" name in a cartouche over the upper floor windows. This feature makes the property stand out for miles around.
Sadly, the original grounds of "Park Lodge" have been lost in the years since it was built, no doubt a victim to the Melbourne property bust of the 1890s. The widening of the road onto which it faces has also encroached upon its boundaries as has the widened railway line. Nevertheless, the current owners have made the most of the space they do have, planting a formal Victorian style garden in keeping with the house's age. It features a range of topiaries and small hedges. The whole garden is enclosed by an ornate wrought iron fence.
Moonee Ponds, like its neighbouring boroughs of Ascot Vale and Essendon, was etablished in the late 1880s and early 1890s. However, unlike its neighbours, it was an area of affluence and therefore only had middle-class, upper middle-class and some very wealthy citizens. Built in the most affluent area of Moonee Ponds, this mansion would have suited a large, wealthy Victorian family of some importance and would have required a small retinue of servants to maintain. Today it is still mantained as a private residence.
