Chadwick House c1904: a piece of iconic Victorian history



The Miles team is thrilled to bring to market Chadwick House – one of the most historically and architecturally significant homes in Victoria.

This lovingly restored, heritage-listed Eaglemont home was designed by architect Harold Desbrowe-Annear who is credited with developing the first open-plan living design – a treasured feature of this iconic 1904 property, which is also noted for its incorporation of medieval Arts and Crafts elements.

Sitting among the tree tops of a gently sloping 1458 square metre block, the four-bedroom house – one of three Desbrowe-Annear properties in a row – has been home to Peter and Jane Crone for 30 years – which is exactly how long the couple have spent painstakingly restoring the property to its original glory. Across this time the pair have stripped back unoriginal features, reinstated original Californian redwood panels, unearthed original colour schemes and reintroduced some 19 windows.

Having admired the iconic property as a student, Peter – a retired architect – and Jane realised a lifelong dream when they purchased the property and set about their award-winning restoration. We at Miles are privileged to work with the current custodians of the house during the sales campaign.

The decision to sell has not come lightly, but as you would expect from this committed couple who have secured the property’s heritage and National Trust listing, they are only moving next door to start a similar restoration protect on another of the three Desbrowe-Annear houses, which was Jane’s mother’s home until her recent passing.

The couple expect the lucky buyer will appreciate owning one of Australia’s most significant 20th century homes.

32-34 The Eyrie, Eaglemont, is being sold by expressions of interest which close on April 16 at 5pm, through Miles Real Estate.
