Calthorpes' House

Calthorpe's House was designed by the Melbourne architects Oakley and Parkes and built in 1927. The house still contains most of its original furniture, furnishings, household appliances, its orginal decorative finishes and many of the Calthorpes' families clothes. In addition the collection includes paper records including invoices realting the construction and fitting out of the house. Calthorpes' House is regarded as Australia's most intact 1920s suburban house.
