National Trust Heritage House Auld Reekie

Auld Reekie National Trust House

Architectural Style: Federation/Edwardian Period (1902-c.1918) Domestic Queen Anne

“Auld Reekie” is the last remaining example of the grand mansions once gracing Royal Parade and is listed with the National Trust of Australia. It is of architectural significance to the State of Victoria as an intact example of an Edwardian era villa in the Federation Queen Anne style – one of the first distinctive Australian architectural styles.

Fully restored with exceptional craftsmanship, it features 13 principle rooms over two storeys. It is situated on a large site area of 2,400 square metres. The 20 metre lap pool in the backyard forms the centre piece of a lush well established garden. The house dates from 1910, but may incorporate an earlier six roomed villa named “May Day”, built in 1872 by a butcher called Henry Harper. Read more about Auld Reekie and its History.

Heritage Reconstruction Work

Auld Reekie Heritage Reconstruction Painting Decorating

Lancaster Painters Australia were hired to repair and reconstruct the painting, decorating and artistic work to the dining room ceiling, cornices and walls above the picture rail of “Auld Reekie” that had been water damaged. Work included moisture testing, colour matching and sensitive cleaning of the affected areas. Gary Lancaster successfully reconstructed the original heritage paintwork, designs and artwork using specialist heritage painting, decorating and artistic skills.

We implemented the latest National Work Health and Safety policies and all works were performed to comply with the Australian Industry Standards. Work areas were kept clean and tidy at all times, and we safely disposed of all rubbish created by the works.
