2017 Open House melbourne
A Victorian Heritage listed mansion and a French language and cultural immersion all in one day!
Sun 30 July, from 10am to 3pm
At Alliance Française de Melbourne, 51 Grey Street, St Kilda
The Alliance Française de Melbourne is excited to be part of the Open House Melbourne 2017 program and to open the doors of its Victorian heritage listed building 'Eildon Mansion' to the community.
On this special occasion, experience the feeling of being immersed in our vibrant and friendly community! Join us on the day and take part in free activities to experience what life is like at Victoria’s best and only French language and cultural centre.
Program of the day:
Eildon Mansion is a sophisticated example of a Renaissance Revival style mansion built in Melbourne in the 19th century. The mansion has retained original internal features such as sandstone, marble and timber mantelpieces, ceiling roses, bay windows, large basement quarters for servants and a cellar. The central section of the building was built in 1850, barely 20 years after Melbourne was founded, making it one of St Kilda’s oldest houses.
