I was delighted to have been asked by the owners of this property to paint this beautiful Federation weatherboard house.
The house is located at the Junction of Grange and Glen Huntly Roads, Glen Huntly. It was built around 1910 and would have been one of the first clusters of residential homes built at the end of the commercial shopping strip that we know today as Glen Huntly.

The home would have been occupied as such until sometime in the late 1960’s when it was converted into the local Post office. I don’t have any recollections of this, but do recall its subsequent use as a nursery for many years in the !990’s and beyond.
I have added some added interest by way of portraying the owners daughter walking the family dog pass the building.
The painting is hanging in the Grange Junction Cafe; 122 Grange Rd, Glen Huntly.
