Summary
  • Set well back from the road across a manicured lawn, the facade of this villa in the Melbourne suburb of East St Kilda is Spanish Mission in style and would have been built in the 1930s. The stucco wall finish and barley twist columns of the front portico loggia pay homage to the Spanish Mission style, as does the sunburst pattern over the front room window and the hacienda style air vent at the top of the gables. The hacienda look, was very much the aim of the Spanish Mission style. The Spanish Mission style was typically a style that emerged in California during the interwar years and spread across the world. As in London, there was a huge expansion in Melbourne after the Great War in 1918, with ribbon development estates with names like &​quot;Oakhill&​quot; and &​quot;Golf Links&​quot; popping up seemingly overnight along rail lines and tram lines. These quickly became suburbs where the newly created and newly moneyed middle classes chose to settle, away from the crowded inner city with its dark Victorian houses and slums. These suburbs gained the mocking title of &​quot;Metroland&​quot;.Representing modernity the inspiration of these &​quot;Metroland&​quot; houses were derived from the Reformist and Arts and Crafts movement in England as well as the more modern lines of the Art Deco, Streamline Moderne and Inter-War Mediterranean architectural styles that were in vogue in the 1920s and 1930s.
