History

Historical notes: Haberfield:
The Haberfield and Dobroyd Point area was used as farmland with scattered industries until after the coming of the steam tramway from Leichhardt to Five Dock. The 1893 Depression retarded subdivision. In 1901 Richard Stanton and WH Nichols, real estate agents of Summer Hill, purchased 50 acres of the Dobroyd Estate from the Ramsay family.

Richard Stanton was an Irish immigrant whose father developed a furniture and auctioneer's business in Summer Hill. By 1910, Stanton controlled 200 acres.

The first subdivision occurred by 1903 and Stanton moved to the new estate in 1907. The original Dobroyd House was demolished and the Bunyas was erected by Stanton, to a design commissioned from the Haberfield Estate architect, John Spencer-Stansfield. Over 1,000 houses on this estate are thought to have been designed by Spencer-Stansfield. (Archnex Designs, 2004).

Derrylyn:
Derrylyn was built in 1910.

An Interim Conservation Order was placed on it on 11 December 1981 at the request of the vendor who was concerned that future owners of the property may propose internal and external changes to the house. With the agreement of the new owner a Permanent Conservation Order was placed over the property on 2 December 1983.

In 1983 through the Heritage Assistance program funding assistance was provided to erect a new picket fence.

On 2 April 2000 the property was transferred to the State Heritage Register.
