Physical Description

A large imposing home built of bricks with an iron roof. It has a wide central passage with four main bedrooms. Utility rooms at the rear are under the original roof, though these have been altered and added to over the years. The roof was covered with a metal mock tile in terracotta in 1976. There is a cellar below, which is very damp. The original wooden verandah has been concreted. This is a charming house with many attractive decorative features


The block was originally owned by John Sims and then inherited by his daughter Jane, who married Harry Wells. Harry built this home of brick with an iron roof.
