Fading beauty..



Maybe decaying beauty would be more appropriate.. but not nearly as romantic :) In North Perth yesterday I knew as soon as I glimpsed the wrought iron fence above that I was hooked and would have to take a closer look. Many of the old brick homes c1900's in this old inner city suburb are being renovated but apart from a small section of scaffolding this old beauty looked pretty desolate. Loved the brick accents and how about those gorgeous windows, they have a touch of Art Deco about them don't you think? If I had a spare couple of million in the bank I would love to restore old treasures like this. Can't believe it's Friday again, one more week before I fly off to visit my Sydney famille, can't wait.. apart from the flying bit :) Take care and stay safe..

  3. That could be a beautiful home. There's a bit of Art Deco on my latest post, especially for you!

  4. That is a beautiful home. I checked with my banker this morning to see if I could get a loan for you and he was very polite but painfully negative. So, maybe someone else will see its potential and get the job done. Wishing you a great weekend also. Some folks have used that "fading" phrase in reference to me, but the word beauty was substituted for something else which I'm going to have to omit here on this family blog. :)

  5. Quite an unusual style. It certainly needs some work though.

  6. In your first pic of the house I thought that it didn't look too bad but the other pics tell a different story, Grace. I sure hope that someone rescues it.

  7. Gorgeous photos I also love them. We had friends here house hunting and they found the most amazing art deco house. They put in a stupid offer and were upset when they missed the boat. I would have loved the place, and it had so many extras with barns and out buildings all in pretty good condition.
    Enjoy Sydney, my BIL is there alone at the moment as SIL is in the UK with FIL!
    Safe flight and enjoy the time away Diane

  9. Such a grand house. I thought it looked good too in the first house photo but saw in the nent few that it needs some TLC. It's a beauty though.

  10. Too bad for the old house. IF it is like here in the States old houses can sometimes be purchased quite inexpensively. It is the cost of renovation that runs into the hundreds of thousands and more.

  12. I just love houses that still have the original period features, awesome.

  13. Love the fence, Grace!
    The house, though, could easily stand in Tuscany as well! Or in Spain you find that style, too.
    It sure looks like hot summer days.

    Yay for seeing the family soon!

  14. Oh my, it sure could use some tender loving care, but oh I can see what a wonderful place it was in it's day. It's just my kind of place too! Repaired of course!

  15. I had to peek at the house again, and I think those windows are just beautiful and I wonder if they're lead glass windows?

  16. Don't those windows look good.

    All the best Jan

  17. Those windows alone would have me hooked...apart, of course, for the small matter of my teeny bank account. It looks - potentially - magnificent.

  18. Imagine what it would look like with some TLC....
