Federation House at 90 Northgate Street, Unley Park. #FederationStyle #UnleyPark #90NorthgateStreet #architecture
The house that has caught my eye this week is an Edwardian turn of the century return verandah Federation Villa at 90 Northgate Street, Unley Park. "Brinkburn Estate" sits on 3,552 square metres of land.
Following the Victorian era, Federation Villas were sans lace work on the verandah posts and were often symmetrical in style. Bluestone was out and rock face sandstone or free-stone was in. Moulded render and bullnose verandahs became fashionable. This was the era of Queen Anne, Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau styles, moulded to an Australian sensibility.
I like the simplicity of the entrance hall.
Casual family and dining areas overlooking the pool and tennis court.
It is close to King William Road, the local shopping strip.
