In Residence offers fittings suitable in their materiality and craftsmanship for heritage home upgrades, whilst being compatible with the modern lifestyle.
Here we explore two recently restored Victorian Era buildings that celebrate rich Gold Rush history. They are a time capsule of artisan techniques and late 19th century architectural styles forged during the reign of Queen Victoria.
This lovingly restored heritage homestead 'The Lawns' in Kyneton, Victoria has been gifted a new lease on life by fifth generation locals. Respecting the quality of the craftsmanship, Perrin & Rowe tapware and The Water Monopoly Rockwell basin on stand and Rockwell bath with ball feet were chosen in traditional white and Nickel colour palette, with beautiful Round tilting mirror from Hawthorn Hill above.
The Kyneton Old Rectory, built in 1850, has undergone extensive renovations and now offers luxurious accommodation including Perrin & Rowe tapware in the bathrooms.
Built of local stone with a mix of late Georgian and Victorian colonial architectural features, the Kyneton Old Rectory is listed by the National Trust of Victoria.
“At it’s best, preservation engages the past in a conversation with the present over a mutual concern for the future.”
