Victorian Farm House


Between Seymour and Yea is this early (1850’s) brick farm house with a large Edwardian extension, in poor condition.


The task was to identify the originality of existing structures and advise on options for preservation and alteration, to improve the practicality of the house.

We provided a report containing a comprehensive appraisal of the originality of structures, fittings and decorative features and options for rectification and alteration – sympathetic to the original.

The owners were pleased to receive clarification of the features relevant to the different periods of the buildings; confirmation of their initial ideas for alterations; and options for rectification work sympathetic to the original.
