On My Doorstep Desbrowe Annear House



external image vhr.jpg








Harold Desbrowe Annear was one of Australia's leading and most innovative Arts and Crafts architects of the early twentieth century. The house at 38 The Eyrie, Eaglemont, designed for himself and his wife Florence, is highly representative of the architect's work during this period, and is possibly his most inventive. 38 The Eyrie is part of an important group of three houses at this location, all designed by Annear. Of the three houses, this one demonstrates the greatest attention to detail and contains a space in the downstairs area that was used as Annear's studio.

Annear moved to Eaglemont in 1901 where he was able to develop his Arts and Crafts principles through a number of commissions. The most well known of these are the three houses he built for his father-in-law James Chadwick in The Eyrie of which this is one. The Chadwick houses or Eyrie houses as they are known form a unique collection and are fine examples of the architect's work as well as highly realised expression of the architect's ideas. In these three related houseshe was able to explore variations in concepts and detailing. These houses are considered to be the best and clearest expression of Annear's Arts and Crafts designs.

These lyrically woody houses are rare and valuable, writes Jenny Brown.
Architect Peter Crone's passionate renovation of a rare and remarkable circa 1903 Arts and Crafts house on a remarkable site at the top of Heidelberg's Mount Eagle (Eaglemont), has been an undertaking lasting 19 years.
He has rebuilt 15 windows - some of which recess up into the walls - stripped some timber panelling and restored other sections.
He has painstakingly sourced a way to copy hand-crafted brass door and window fittings and scraped back paint to reveal original colours to reinstate on interiors and exteriors. Yet . . . he's not quite finished.
There is one side of the house still to be excavated by removing a Federation (i.e. 1919) tack-on extension.
When that comes off, the vision of one of Melbourne's most notable Arts and Crafts architects, Harold Desbrowe Annear, will be fully revealed in its richly detailed and lyrically woody splendour.
The ceiling beams are Douglas fir from Oregon; the interior panels are Sequoia, from California's giant redwoods - aged claret. "Dark, but we like it," says artist Jane Crone.
Their beautiful, flowing "unusually open-plan" home known as "the Chadwick House" by National Trust and Heritage Victoria, is the middle of three similar classified Arts and Crafts houses designed by Annear for himself, for his father-in-law, and for the Officer family. All share incredible north-eastern views to the Dandenongs.
Peter Crone has his now-practiced eye for the way one of his architectural heroes crafted unique houses on a new project to restore another Annear house. It will be another mightily protracted renovation, yet he has already started in with a crowbar.
Last year, his mother-in-law Margaret Bennett bought Annear's own home, the one just up the hill and the first thing Crone uncovered was the architect's studio on the lower floor. He broke unsympathetic add-on bathrooms and bedrooms to reveal the bones of the big square room in which Annear worked 100 years ago. "Quite unique. Wonderful," he marvels.
It's an understatement when it comes to describing Arts and Crafts houses in any respect. They resulted from an aesthetic movement - born initially in Britain in the late 1800s but a movement that found expression in many Western countries - as a reaction against the mass production of the industrial era.
It was a return to craft and the aesthetic of the hand-made item that was chosen for beauty and made to last.

The artisan ethos is evident in everything to do with Arts and Crafts.

From the choice of materials; wood, brass, leadlight, lathe plaster, stippled walls containing plastered lumps of coal, turned joinery in organic shapes, to the merest details such as brass latches, hinges and catches.
In two hours spent touring the two houses; opening and examining every bit of ingeniously inbuilt furniture and investigating every utilised nook under the stairs, Peter Crone could point to the endless details of one-off creativity that are always functional and beautiful in their honesty. "It's all about the detailing," he says.\
His admiration for Annear's expression of Arts and Crafts Australian-style never flags. "Everything about these houses is considered individually. Just fabulous. He was brilliant," he says. "He thought of everything."

Arts and Crafts houses in Victoria are relatively rare.

"We've lost a few," says Tracey Avery, conservation co-ordinator with the National Trust. "Comparatively few were built in Australia. In Victoria, they were built in the country, in the Western District, and in the wealthier suburbs of Toorak, Parkville, East Melbourne, Caulfield and eastern suburbs."
There are five in Heidelberg. The best local Arts and Crafts properties were by Annear, Robert Haddon and Walter Butler.
The houses concentrate in the 19th century red-brick wealth belts because all the fine detail made them expensive to construct, she says. "They rarely come up on the open market and are so special, they are hard to value."
As real estate they are actually in such an exceptional category that she is happy to use the words "priceless" and "irreplaceable". And for that, Ms Avery can't emphasise enough that they are housing stock that should be so valued by their owners that they are treated with kid-gloves
"If you have one of these houses, like Peter Crone, research the architecture and live with them before you alter them. In that way you'll discover how practical they are. The interiors have an enduring beauty and simplicity that already fits in well with modern living. The built-in furniture is as practical today as it was 100 years ago."
Sought after yet rare indeed and often, characteristically on big blocks. Scott Patterson, director of Jellis Craig Hawthorn, says Arts and Crafts houses often preside in the centre of overly large blocks that are hard to subdivide. He sold one, set on an enormous site this year in Canterbury for more than $2.7 million.
"Magnificent. Beautiful proportions and with rooms that flowed into each other," he says.
Mr Patterson says all period houses in the inner suburbs are popular but Arts and Crafts are especially prized and are easily in the $2-$3 million category "depending on land size".

The renewed appreciation for the style is timely

because it presents a complete contrast to mass-produced modern, minimalist interiors. Instead, Arts and Crafts houses are about the enhancement of the material fabric. "It's known as 'truth to material'," Ms Avery explains. "There is a sense of the emotional connection to materials. The timber and metal. They convey a craftsmanship that people seem to really appreciate. Even the door handles are both decorative and comfortable to use."
Further to being enchantingly attractive, these antique homes embody some of the pioneering principals of sustainable building. "They're also about good sustainable architecture," says Ms Avery. "They used local materials and local craftsmen. They didn't import mass-produced items."
In the two Annear houses on Mount Eagle (which unusually do have imported timbers), Peter Crone was able to point out cleverly concealed ventilation ducts in all the ceilings in all the rooms. He also showed how strategically placed windows gathered sun and cooling breezes deep into the dark-panelled rooms.
"In terms of climate control," said Ms Avery "they have marvellous passive ventilation. They can teach us a lot about sustainable architecture."
So . . . Peter Crone has a bit of work on his hands but he is already rubbing them together at the prospect of tackling his mother-in-law's restoration project. Fortunately, he loves working with wood.
"Let me get into it," he grins. "This will come up beautifully."
