This is Napier Waller House in Fairy Hills, Ivanhoe. The main house was designed and built in 1922 by pre-raphaelite inspired mural and mosaic artist Mervyn Napier Waller, 1893-1972. Waller completed significant murals for State Library of Victoria and Melbourne Town Hall and glass work for the Australian War Memorial. He also became senior art teacher at the then Working Men's College (RMIT University). The house and studio contents are preserved by the heritage council. External shots of the house and studio are used as Dr Blake's House in the TV series The Doctor Blake Mysteries.
