Vintage Newstead

Newstead

Expert professional opinion stated that this home in Wyndham Street Newstead “was quite typical of the Spanish Mission/California bungalow style pioneered in Australia by a young architect whose surname was Snedden.”

Snedden promoted architecture of Spanish Mission architectural style in Australia. In the 1920’s as a young architect, Snedden went to California to study this style and upon his return, he established a successful practice specialising in that style.

By contrast the North/NW/West aspects of  the house is very typical of French/ Belgian country/estate bungalow style. It is a lovely blend of the two styles, not to mention the really sound architect/builder know-how!

Be this as it may this property has become a gracious sanctuary offering a number of options for shared living or for professionals to live and work from home.

Perhaps even more alluring is the magical, semi bush setting with glorious views of the Newstead oval.

This really is an oasis in Newstead, a thriving village with a rich sense of community.
