‘Inspice’, initially called ‘Glen Lyon’, was the home of Justice Lionel Lukin, the first Queensland-born judge of the Supreme Court of Queensland. The house, a high quality timber Federation residence erected on over three acres of land, was designed for Lukin and his family by budding architect Robin Dods in 1900. The Lukin family retained ownership of the house for the next five decades, although Lukin’s ‘Inspice Estate’ was subdivided and sold in sections in the 1920s and 1930s, the latter following wife Catherine’s death and Lukin’s move to Melbourne. Additions to the residence were undertaken in 1948 by the Lukin family, before it was sold in 1956. ‘Inspice’ is important not only for its association with Justice Lukin, but also as an early example of the work of prominent Brisbane architect Robin S. Dods, and as a twentieth century Federation residence in Hendra.
