Residence

Summary

This timber residence was originally built on Ipswich Road as offices for the Stephens Divisional Board. It was designed circa 1890 by notable architect Alexander Brown Wilson who also served as Chairman of the Board from 1890-91. After the Stephens Shire amalgamated to form the Greater Brisbane Council in 1925, the land was sold and the building moved to the rear of the block, facing Ealing Street. It has since been adapted for use as a private residence and has undergone a number of alterations and additions.
