The property was subdivided as Whitakers Estate in the 1880s. The house was built c.1905 for Edgar Charles Friend, schoolmaster, of Guildford. Part of the grounds was later subdivided to create Wingello Street. The house is readily identifiable as part of the historic building stock of the area, and makes a strong contribution to the area character.
