Narrapumelap Homestead - A French Gothic Mansion in Victoria.

Last year we visited the Narrapumelap Homestead in Western Victoria with some friends. It was built in 1873 by successful pastorialist and philanthropist John Dixon Wyselaskie. It was excellent camera fodder. The gardens were lovely and green and the inside has been undergoing extensive rennovation for a few years now.
Look at that roofline!

Lot's of manicured hedging.

Slightly staged!

I think the little Moerks had fun!

For more lovely photos of Narrapumelap Homestead, go to their website here.

Tomorrow I will post some photos of the fabulous kitchen with its impressive skylight and lovely leadlight windows.
