Verge House Website (& 'Last Call' for Sydney & Canberra Tour)
The owners of the Verge House, Canberra (1964), have published a website dedicated to their unique house. It’s a fantastic and informative read. I was not aware of the relationship between the original client, W. G. Verge, and the Australian colonial architect John Verge (1788–1861). Boyd was a big fan of ‘the finest house in the colony’, Verge’s Elizabeth Bay House (1839). I’m very much looking forward to seeing the Verge House in the upcoming tour of Canberra (please contact me if you wish to attend but haven’t registered!).
