In 1979, one clever school mum came up with the idea of opening up the area’s most prestigious private homes to raise funds for St. Joseph’s Primary School.
The 39th annual Open Houses showcased five stunning homes and one incredible garden in Melbourne's Inner East -Astolat House.
All money raised will support the educational programmes at the small school.
