"Newross" a Large Queen Anne Villa - Travancore
Named "Newross", this beautiful Queen Anne style villa of grand proportions is situated in a quiet, tree lined street in the Melbourne suburb of Travancore. Built in the years immediately following Australian Federation (1901), the choice of red brick to construct the house is very Arts and Crafts inspired, as are the terracotta roof tiles. The decorative air vent above the rounded bay window is more Art Nouveau influenced. 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. Travancore is a bijou suburb named after a beautiful Victorian mansion erected in 1863. The mansion's grounds were subdivided in the late 1890s to form the new suburb, which consists only of only about five streets. With commanding views of Royal Park, the area was much sought after by aspiring middle and upper middle-class citizens. This very spacious stand alone double brick residence with two sets of bay windows on this facade alone is one of the grander residences in the neighbourhood. On the corner of two streets on the crest of the hill and diagonally across from the Anglican church (the only church in the suburb), this house would have been acquired by an upper middle-class family. Houses like these would have suited a medium sized Edwardian family, and would have required a retinue of servants to maintain. The whole house, which has a large street frontage, is surrounded by a well established garden enclosed by a clipped hedge.
Art Deco Villa in White - Travancore
Built in the 1930s, this pretty and very stylised Art Deco villa can be found in the Melbourne suburb of Travancore. The stepped chimney, Streamline Moderne style windows and the box like enclosed porch all pay homage to the chic, uncluttered lines of Art Deco architecture. This house has a beautiful garden surrounded by a well clipped hedge. The garden features any number of azalias, camelias and connifers, some of which have probably been growing in the garden since the house was first built in the mid 1930s. Travancore is a bijou suburb named after a beautiful Victorian mansion erected in 1863. The mansion's grounds were subdivided in the late 1890s to form the new suburb, which consists only of only about five streets. With commanding views of Royal Park, the area was much sought after by aspiring middle and upper middle-class citizens. This small residence was built on the lowest section of Travancore, which was the last portion of the suburb to be subdivided on what was formerly the mansion's old dairy. Its position and size would suggest it have been acquired by an aspiring middle-class family who wanted modernity. The mistress of this house would probably have kept it without any help from outside, but with the modern conveniences of her home, she would not have needed help.
