MORE GREAT PROPERTIES OF COUNTRY VICTORIA – book

$59.99

English novelist Anthony Trollope described Victoria’s Western District squatters in the 1870s as ‘plentiful, proud, prejudiced, given to hospitality, impatient of contradiction, thoughtful on the future, and above all, conscious, perhaps a little too conscious, of their own importance. Forty thousand sheep cannot be shorn without a piano; twenty thousand is the lowest number that renders napkins at dinner imperative’.

The Western District today retains most of the renowned homesteads and gardens that date from these times. This fascinating and beautiful book; sequel to the bestselling Great Propertis of Country Victoria (also available in our store) takes us into the private world of twelve more notable properties. Through their early histories we follow their fortunes; extraordinary tales of hardship, risk and reward; and through the photographs we see the splendour of great homes that have been lovingly and carefully maintained and restored. It is a tribute to the past and present owners who have so painstakingly preserved their properties’ heritage.

Who are Love of Home?

Brass, linen and velvet, timber, pottery, and antiques. Our old Australian homes are not complete unless they’re styled with loads of these!

For years I have been selling antique and vintage pieces and homewares that are perfectly at home in the old Australian home. Fast forward to 2022 and finally I’ve opened an online store so that those of you who live further afield can purchase these gorgeous finds for your own homes too.

Love of Home’s interior style is about the simple life and the ease of old house country living, but you don’t need to live in the country to enjoy the look and feel of the old Australian home.

The look and feel is beautifully weathered by life, with delightful texture and patina. Pieces that whether they are old or new, are perfect in their imperfections and have a story to tell and a special place in your old Australian home.

Welcome to the Love of Home carefully curated collection for your old Australian home!
