Detail of "Linwood" a Small Queen Anne Villa - Essendon





Neat and tidy, "Linwood" is a small Edwardian villa in the Melbourne suburb of Essendon which stands proudly behind its brick fence. It is named after either a little village in Renfrewshire, Scotland, or Lincolnshire, England. As Essendon had a high population of immigrants and first generation Australians around the turn of the Twentieth Century, it would not be inappropriate to assume that the owners who built this villa were Scottish or English, and may have come from Linwood.

Built around the turn of the Twentieth Century, this small villa has been built in the Queen Anne style, which was mostly a residential style inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement in England, but also encompassed some of the more stylised elements of Art Nouveau, which gave it an more decorative look. The red brick from which the villa is built is in keeping with the Arts and Crafts movement. Yet the stylised fretwork of the enclosed verandah and the stained glass windows are Art Nouveau in design.

Queen Anne style was most popular around the time of Federation. With complex roofline structures and undulating facades, many Queen Anne houses fell out of fashion at the beginning of the modern era, and were demolished.

Essendon was established in the 1860s and became an area of affluence and therefore only had middle-class, upper middle-class and some very wealthy citizens. Smaller than other houses in the area, this villa was built for an aspiring middle-class family. This villa would have required only the assistance of a live-in domestic and perhaps the enlisted service of a "daily" woman to maintain it.

This small Edwardian villa in the Melbourne suburb of Essendon which stands proudly behind a hedge is built next door to its sister villa, "Linwood".

Built around the turn of the Twentieth Century, this small villa has been built in the Queen Anne style, which was mostly a residential style inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement in England, but also encompassed some of the more stylised elements of Art Nouveau, which gave it an more decorative look. The red brick from which the villa is built is in keeping with the Arts and Crafts movement, as is the choice of slate tiling on the roof. Yet the stylised fretwork of the verandah, the terracotta finial atop the villa's front gable, the ornate capping along the roofline and the stained glass windows in the bay are Art Nouveau in design.
