This is what I politely call a Mullet House; it's business in the front, and party in the rear.
But it works.
The house, a Victorian in Melbourne, Australia, underwent renovations in the front, to keep the characteristic charms, and added onto in the back to create a more modern, open to the backyard, addition.
The house features a a new upper level extension separated into two private zones
for parents and children, as well as a formal lounge, separate dining rooms, eat-in kitchen with an informal
sitting room, a games room, a second informal sitting room, a study, six bedrooms--all with ensuite baths--off-street parking for 6 cars, security, a gym and private garage.
Oh, and the party pool.
In the back.
