A Large Arts and Crafts Villa - Essendon
A Large Arts and Crafts Villa - Essendon
Situated behind a modern brick garden wall built in the style of the house, this splendid Reformist (Arts and Crafts) style villa is situated in one of the finer areas of the inner northern Melbourne suburb of Essendon. Built between Federation (1901) and the Great War (1914), the shingled barge board beneath the eaves of the gables, rough cast stucco work pn the chimney and terracotta roof tiles are very Arts and Crafts inspired, as is the choice of red brick to build the villa with. The stained glass windows featuring red tulips are more Art Nouveau in style, and the finials on the roof and the terracotta dragon on the left-hand side of the roof suggests that this villa was updated to a more ornate Queen Anne style at some stage after its construction. The original owners of this villa may have struck difficult times during the Great Depression of the 1930s, as the former porch canopy has been enclosed to create an additional room - perfect for a border from whom rent may be gleaned to help ends meet! The attic window too, is an additional feature and may have been done in the 1930s or later to add extra space in the roof cavity. Arts and Crafts houses challenged the formality of the mid and high Victorian styles that preceded it, and were often designed with uniquely angular floor plans. Essendon was etablished in the 1860s and became an area of affluence and therefore only had middle-class, upper middle-class and some very wealthy citizens. A large villa like this built in one of the finer pockets of the suburb suggests that it was built for an aspiring upper middle-class family of some means. This villa would have required a small retinue of servants to maintain.

The vines pour forth from the windows. The awnings are demonstrative. The colour is beige. That large window to the left of the lawnchair is weird. --------- At the intersection of Fairview Avenue and Van Buren Avenue in St. Paul, Minnesota.
