The Federation Heritage of beach-side Cottesloe, W.A.
From JONATHAN CHANCELLOR | 4 JANUARY 2012 ProperyObserver.com.au:
Cottesloe was named by Governor Frederick Broome, in 1886, soon gathering the wealthy of Perth during the summer months as the beach is sheltered from the south-west winds in summer and protected by reefs and islands off the coast.
The Town of Cottesloe prides themselves on having some of the most beautiful surrounds in the Perth metropolitan area.

“Belvedere”, 12 Rosendo Street Cottesloe WA 6011
A stunning beach side home that reflects the prosperity of the Australian Gold Rush of the 1890’s. This majestic home is a timeless statement of achievement with solid limestone walls, wide, shady return verandahs and remarkable 3 storey tower with windows all round to provide uninterrupted coastal views.
Belvedere is one of three limestone homes in a rare grouping that includes Tukurua, built in 1896, and the 116-year-old Le Fanu.
Belvedere, a limestone 1897 Cottesloe residence, has been listed with $5.5 million-plus hopes.

Another Cottesloe Federation Queen Anne-style property, Trafalgar House, constructed in 1915 for William Liddell, the manager of Hoskins Foundry and Kalgoorlie Foundry, is listed through Chris Shellabear at Shellabears.
Le Fanu House
Le Fanu House (formerly Banksia), Salvado St, Cottesloe, in 1972. The Trust Classified this place in 1979.
The original five roomed seaside holiday cottage residence was constructed in 1893 for Henry Diggins Holmes, his wife Marion and their three children. The Holmes family were significant to the establishment and development of Cottesloe and were major contributors to charitable institutions, most notably the Ministering Children’s League.
In 1945, Le Fanu was bought by the Anglican Church, which continued the charity work of the Holmes, and the house was used as a meeting place for religious organisations and groups.
For years, Le Fanu cried out for help until restoration work began in 2010.
Cottesloe mansion Le Fanu restored to magnificence
A prime example of a grand beachside home, it reflects the affluence created by the gold boom of the 1890s, with features including thick limestone walls, a turret, gables, ornate chimneys, a ballroom and a wood-panelled study.
But, with foresight and years of hard work by a renowned architect, committed owners, the State Heritage Council, the Town of Cottesloe and an extremely dedicated builder, the extensive restoration of one of Perth’s most famous heritage-listed houses is finally complete.
The once proud testimony to Queen Anne-style architecture had been reduced to nothing more than an outlet for angst and vandalism.
“No residential project in WA has involved this level of conservation works, nor this level of urgency,” he said in 2010.
Completion Date: 2015
Originally known as “Banksia”. The place which overlooks the Indian Ocean is of considerable architectural interest and has associations with prominent people who were notable for their charity..
