Statement of Significance

St. Mary’s Anglican Church Rectory, a limestone and iron in the Federation Italianate style is a good and substantial example of a rectory and of a building in the style. It is a distinctive building and integral part of the Anglican Church precinct.

Physical Description

A limestone and iron rectory in the Federation Italianate style.
The place is a generous limestone walled building with stucco trim, a facetted bay window and iron roof, in the Federation Italianate style. A deep verandah extends across the southern face of the building from the bay window. Tall limestone chimneys with rendered caps further enrich the substantial steeply pitched roof.


There is conflicting information on the place and it is said that the place was built in 1895 and not occupied until 1906. More research is required on its origins and use.
A substantial building with wide verandahs and a hexagon bay window in one corner. A rector first occupied the building in 1906.
