Statement of Significance

For historical and architectural reasons, this is a significant site of which the extant buildings are the most important material evidence and as such are still in use.

Physical Description

A large two-storey house (originally with two-storey verandahs). It is characteristic internally and externally of the grand style of architecture at the turn of the century, the only example of its type in the region. Removal of the verandahs and restoration of the facades has resulted in an Italianate appearance, which belies the original architectural character.


Cheriton was originally settled by W.L. Brockman and is therefore synonymous with the settlement and opening up of the Gingin region. A syndicate of northwest pastoralists, Gooch, Harper, Edgar and Wedge, resettled in this area. George Gooch built this house.
