I live in a rented property on Oreintal Parade. The house we live is is one of the oldest in the area, though you wouldnt know it to walk past, the company that owns it ripped off the original brick front with huge bay windows, and replaced it with a cheap stock hardboard facade with aluminium windows. This is because the house is so old with so much history that it was goign to be a heritage site and therefore it would be illegal to knock it down and replace it with a souless apartment block. It will now no longer be a heritage site because of this hidious alteration so the landlord can profit twice as much. Very clever. We are enjoying very much being able to live in our amazing house before it gets murdered. Inside there is all the original woodwork wihich is very beautiful.
