Park Life by Toni Frew,
published in Australian Looks, April 1996

"… The property occupies an exquisite site - with views of the buildings of the city of Melbourne and the waters of Western Port Bay - and is bounded by a state forest. To top this off it is also on gently undulating land which gives it the air of a park or the grounds of an old stately home. Miracuously, many fine old trees had been left standing after fires swept through the area…

… The home has large, sliding, full length walls of windows and has been built around several courtyards and an internal garden, so that there is no visual boundary between house and garden…."


Green Phoenix by Natalia Standfield,
published in House & Garden, September 1995

"… views of the green pool and garden can be seen from all parts of the house except the main bedroom, which has its own garden and courtyard …

All the interiors display Veronika's cosmopolitan style. Among her treasures are are family possessions from Germany including dowry chests, a collection of pewter, glassware and crockery. From her travels she has artefacts from the Sepik River and the Trobriand Islands in Papua New Guinea, an old lamp from Spain, African statues, Turkish coffee grinders and Asian artefacts."
