Main staircase, Mintaro, Monegeetta. Though derelict, the mansion is a rare surviving example of a Boom period house with an intact interior decorative scheme. Interiors at this time were extremely elaborate, but surviving examples are rare. Original decorative schemes for entire rooms in Mintaro survive and are still visible. The mansion was auctioned in 2012 and is presently being restored. Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Mintaro grand ballroom. Victorian Italianate mansion in Monegeetta, designed by James Gall in 1882 for Captain Robert Gardner. During a 78 year ownership by the Rae family its remarkable interiors survived mainly due to neglect as the house was never 'renovated'. Sold in a derelict state for $3million in 2012, back on the market a few months later; the second buyers have begun a complete restoration. Photo: John McCoy, Flickr
