Statement of significance:

Brunyarra, located on the corner of Carrington Avenue was built in 1880 for John Spencer Brunton. It was a private home until 1928 when it became a reception/catering establishment. In 1955 the Sisters of St.Dominic purchased the building and established Santa Maria Del Monte Convent. A Victorian Italiante building constructed of rendered brick, it has a projecting two storey bay and a return verandah. Features include arched top windows, rendered labels with keystones, rendered eave brackets, rendered chimneys and large masonry columns to the verandah. An unsympathetic fence to The Boulevarde detracts from the streetscape value. Brunyarra is of local significance for its architectural qualities that contribute to the overall streetscape of The Boulevarde.
