A hidden gem in Carlton North
If you travel down Rathdown St you will have see Krinclafold House circa 1884, this exquisite 140 year old mansion in North Carlton.
The original owners David and Agnes Linklater had 9 children with the second owners two surviving children putting the property up for sale in 2018 after it had been left abandoned for the past 5-6 years.
Right on queue
As we stopped the third owner of property popped out and said they are the third owner and that it has been in the same family for over 100 years.
Now after many months the restoration process continues in bringing this Victorian Terrace to it's former glory.
The painstaking detail includes the reproduction of the last surviving rain head using the old cast iron process.
Back on the cobblestones
We continued on our way along the cobblestones that provided the properties services including coal & milk deliveries, nightsoil cartage (Pre Melbourne's sewerage system) and access to horse stabling.
