A mid-20th century family home in Gembrook, Victoria.
Director of Robert Gordon, Bobby Gordon, and his partner Rowena Henry (Gordon Henry Architects), have forged a deep love-affair with a unique family home in the hills of Gembrook. The February edition of Country Style take us on a tour of the double storey dwelling, highlighting the careful restorative work the couple have made.
It was important to Bobby and Rowena, that any changes or additions to the home remain true to the history of the site. A sensitive and gentle approach has been implemented, with updates in-keeping with the era.
Growing up in Gembrook Victoria, as a young child Bobby would stare at the white house across the road from his family home and marvel at the proud facade. When the house came on the market in 2017, he saw an oppurtunity to bring it back to what he had always perceived as an aspirational home when he was a child.
