A two-storey villa in Melbourne, built in 1890, with a three-storey tower. The ground floor has a hall and lobby, living room, dining room, kitchen and larder, billiard room, home office, conservatory (used as a guest bedroom) and WC. On the first floor is the master bedroom suite, the kids’ rooms, a bathroom, a WC, den and hall. A veranda runs around both storeys, while the upper level of the tower comprises a rooftop terrace and bar.
An aboriginal flag proudly flies above the tower, which is the perfect spot to enjoy views overlooking the city.
A quirky painting has been paired with diamond-patterned wallpaper, unusually used to upcycle a Fifties sideboard.

Panels on the cupboard doors tell the story of the house, which was named Huntingtower when it was built, before becoming the home of Herbert Booth, who helped set up The Salvation Army in Australia. The home office has a gentlemen’s club feel.

As the house is located on a hill, it enjoys cool refreshing breezes and overlooks the garden. The Victorian details, with grandiose architraves and wrought-iron balconies provide a dramatic backdrop to family life.
