Residence 'Cleona'


This three-storey timber residence was constructed for painter Ernest Kunze and his wife Elizabeth circa 1902 as a rental investment property. By the early twentieth century, Highgate Hill, and particularly Dornoch Terrace, was emerging as a desirable area for the middle class and ‘Cleona’ would have proven a wise investment for the Kunzes. The property continued to be rented out and remained in the ownership of Elizabeth Kunze until her death in 1940 when it was transferred to members of her family.
