The house down the road in Melbourne

I stood on the corner of the road opposite on a very hot morning and sketched this house and then colored it when I got home.
I really like this house with its wonderful wrought iron gates and terra cotta washed walls and what will be a huge date palm in the front garden. I wonder how long this will last, but at the moment it is a good foil for the rest of it.
I have no doubt it replaces a much more modest house but I do like its Spanish influence.
