Eaglemont


Welcome to Eaglemont

Some of Australia’s greatest architects and artists have made an indelible mark on the rich, green tapestry that is blue ribbon Eaglemont. Heidelberg School Impressionists captured Yarra valley landscapes from its lofty heights while Harold Desbrowe Annear, Robin Boyd, Frederick Romberg and American Walter Burley Griffin helped shape the magnificent residential texture for which it is much admired today.

History

Originally known as Mount Eagle, the first homes to be built in Eaglemont were constructed in the 1840s and the area was first subdivided in 1853.  The famous Mount Eagle and Glenard Estates were designed by Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin in 1915 and 1916 respectively and remain fine examples of early 20th century ‘garden suburb’ planning. Artists have been drawn to Eaglemont’s natural beauty since the 1880s, when Arthur Streeton and his contemporaries painted the ‘Mount Eagle’ house, gardens and views as part of the Heidelberg School (an art movement described as Australian Impressionism). Today, Robin Boyd-designed homes and Paul Bangay gardens continue Eaglemont’s reputation for beautiful, aesthetic design.
