What is significant? Grange Lynne, 6 Grange Road, Toorak designed by Edward F. Billson and constructed in 1933, is significant. The significant attributes are the Old English Revival with Moderne influence style form, materials and detailing of the flats as designed by Billson, which is complemented by the battered brick retaining fence/wall along the main front and side boundaries, and the original garages at the rear, at least one of which retains its original door with square windows with horizontal glazing bars. The high degree of external intactness and the lack of fencing along the two frontages contributes to the significance of the place.
Later alterations and additions are not significant.
How is it significant? Grange Lynne is of local architectural significance to the City of Stonnington.
Why is it significant? Architecturally, Grange Lynne is a highly accomplished example of Old English Revival, combined with Moderne elements, which demonstrates the influence of Modernism in domestic design in the early 1930s. It is distinguished by the high quality of its brickwork - particularly the gables as well as the battered fence. Its significance is enhanced by the high level of intactness and retention of details such as the abstracted Gothic entry lamps, the name of the building in metal letters, and the intricate geometric leadlights. It is a fine example of the domestic work of Edward F. Billson and the skilful application of the brickwork in particular is testament to his skill as an architect. (Criteria E, F & H)
