Know of a post-war residential building that contributes to the heritage of Moonee Valley?

We’ve got a list of potential post-war properties but would like to know if there are more.

What is post-war heritage?

Post-war residential buildings emerged in Moonee Valley after World War II the growth in household sizes, home ownership and an architectural style influenced by immigration and manufacturing. Post-war residential buildings are typically brick veneer featuring mass produced decorative flourishes.

Most identified post-war places in Moonee Valley are houses from the early post-war era (1945-55) which show the influence of Art Deco/Moderne and Old English, as well as more cutting-edge houses designed by architects.

What is the focus of this Heritage Study?

In 2014, Moonee Valley undertook a Heritage Gap Study to identify gaps in Moonee Valley's heritage protection and established a work program to guide future heritage studies. The adopted study identified places of potential heritage value under a range of themes.

This study focuses on post-war residential buildings.
