What Houzz contributors are saying:

2. Ailsa House. This home's architect, Bertrand Waterhouse, was a well-known Sydney architect who took most of his inspiration from British architects C.F.A. Voysey and Baillie Scott. Waterhouse believed in simple, straightforward designs free of unnecessary encumbrances. The Ailsa House, designed in 1908, offers a typical example of Waterhouse's Arts and Crafts style. This house has a sandstone foundation. Sandstone is the bedrock for most of Sydney — it has distinctive earthy qualities and was often used in buildings of this era. Rising up from a single-story kitchen to two stories at its gabled entrance, this house is made up of a series of steep gabled roofs, roughcast exterior walls, protruding balconies and shade-stone arched openings. On every elevation, bays and balconies provide built-in seating. Like many of Waterhouse's homes, the Ailsa House is adorned with exposed timber ceiling beams and wainscoting in the main interior rooms. Photo by Wikimedia Commons user Sardaka
