Horses and carriage house styles in Australia
Horses and horse-drawn carriage houses have a long history in Australia.
The Victorian Government built a series of carriage houses in Sydney’s northern suburbs during the 18th century, and it is believed the buildings were intended to help keep horses from running away from the carriage houses.
The first carriage house in Australia was built by Sir Charles Dufferin in the 1860s.
The building was designed by George and William McRae, who built a three-storey Victorian carriage house that was later converted into a hotel and apartments.
In the late 19th century and early 20th century horse carriage houses became popular in the United States, and in New York in the 1930s, a carriage house was built in New Jersey that was intended to serve as a horse carriage house.
In recent years, horse carriage homes have become popular in Europe, and are often found in castles, villages and castles.
Australia’s first horse carriage-house was built on the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1863.
In 1878, the New South Wales Legislative Assembly adopted a bill that allowed for the construction of horse carriage sheds, a move that was approved by the Victorian Government.
Today, carriage houses are common in most European countries, but in Australia they have always been seen as an ideal way to keep horses away from homes, and they are also considered to be a form of domestic animal housing.
There are many carriage houses built in Australia, from Sydney’s Mount Kelleys to the remote rural community of Mount Isa.
