Clearing Photos 6

It has taken the best part of two years to renovate this multi dwelling house. Three storey houses are quite unusual in Melbourne. This one in Park Street, South Yarra is a stunner.

    Looks a lot like a four storey house to me? Count them 1, 2, 3, 4.

    Sorry delete my last comment - silly me didn't realise it was two photos. Feeling quiet dumb now, blame it on old age...hahaha

  4. Andrew, it is absolutely stunning and I'm going to be very happy living here.

  5. I love this building. I stayed there for a couple of weeks in the early 90s when it was a guesthouse full of...marginalised people (it was a temporary home for me between rentals when I was a student).

    I feel a bit sorry that such vulnerable people were booted out to make way for a fancy pants renovation, but I guess that's the way things go these days.

  6. Jayne, I would hate to think what they sell for.

    As if I would delete Anon. Would have been nice to have a camera that could capture the whole building.

    Tip for you Jah Teh. Borders book vouchers are accepted.

    Really FL. I am impressed. There were many boarding houses there. I think there is only one now. While Park Street residents might be the better for it, the disappearing boarding houses have certainly made it quite a homogeneous street.

  7. Oh Andrew, as if I'd be seen in a Borders book shop after I've just sold my soul to The Book Depository.

  8. Would Italianate be the correct description? I'm just not sure.
    Great building and pics too.

  9. So it is all your fault that Borders went broke Jah Teh.

    I think so Ian. I am never game to specify a period unless I am absolutely certain. It is too easy to be shot down.

Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
