Heritage Register

Place Details



This large residence was built circa 1888 for notable architect Henry Hunter who was also responsible for its design. It’s construction and design is representative of the diverse residential development of Indooroopilly that occurred during the late nineteenth century and the desirability of the area among professional middle class residents. Henry’s son Walter obtained title to the property only a couple of years later, renting it out to various tenants for more than 20 years. Since he sold the house in 1919, it has had a number of different owners.
