Wow! What a magnificent family home this must have been in it's hay day. Our guide Diana was fantastic. She was very happy, friendly, knowledgable and enthusiastic. She included the young children and I'm sure they learnt a lot. Thanks Diana for the opportunity to fill in some of the gaps in my family history.

Unfortunately this historic home is hardly ever open to viewing. it has recently been handed over to the National Trust of WA. inside it has been furnished nicely with items that are appropriate for the time. It is greatly dissapointing that it is currently only open on a Sunday approx. once a month by volunteers.

This is a lovely old house, nicely furnished, and the well in the hallway is really interesting.

A house you will love to see and stroll through again you realise what a history we have, on the wharfs and pilgrims from all worlds
