Architecture Wednesday: The Armandale House

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.

Again this week, not sure about the outside, but the inside got me. The first three photos I absolutely love! I love that dark grey or is it a form of black? I have wanted to do that, but haven't had the balls yet.

Textured ceiling. Whiter than white walls. Dark walnut flooring. What's not to love about this place?

Nice "little" place. I love the surprise of it all.
