The ancestral house of Amiable Duperouzel is located in York which is about 1.5 hours drive east of Perth (unless I am driving so it will be likely to be somewhere closer to 2 hours).

As far as I am aware, no one in the family owns the house anymore.  I did this sketch from across the road (sorry, home owners, in case you think I was up to no good).  The sketch was too quick for my liking, but I’m quite glad I managed to get the feel of the house on to the page.

If anyone is keen on reading up about the family, there are copies of the book here, written by an extremely talented lady.  You know how you are 😀
