Construction years: 1899-
Physical description: Walls are constructed of dark brown Croyden open kiln bricks with exceptional moulded strapwork and string courses. The roof is of Goodlet and Smith marseilles tiles with roughcast gables and bracketted overhangs. Verandah posts are turned timber and there are delicate timber details in the ground floor valance and upper storey railing. The details of the house are identical to several others designed by Slayter, especially the corbelled gable treatment, the elaborate brick detailing, verandah trims and window details (National Trust).
Modifications and dates: Substantially intact


Historical notes: Built in 1899 by T E Quiggan to the design of Charles Slayter, on land originally bought by Slayter from Brodie Estate in 1897, and sold to G F Todman, merchant. The design is in Queen Anne style and is similar to Slayter's other works (National Trust). Historical period: Pre- 1900.
