Residence

Summary

This well-situated masonry residence was constructed circa 1899 for accountant Frederick Peberdy and his wife Amy. It was originally part of the large Thompson Estate and was one of few houses in the area to be built using brick, perhaps owing to Frederick’s professional status. The house was occupied by the Peberdys until around 1920 and has since been maintained as a private residence.
