This Italianate style Victorian bay two storied Villa was built for and by local stonemason David Millar. Known for its abundance of carved stonework, concentrated on the pilasters flanking the windows, the distinctive arched motifs usually used on industrial buildings and the triangular plaster panels of the gables reflect the elaborate style of pushing the boundaries on modern design in the 1800s.Designed by Forrester and Lemon it was becoming typical of their villas to be out of the ordinary and so ornate. Built in 1876 the construction is Oamaru stone brick and plaster with wood and iron on the eaves and gables and the roof is G iron with 9 newly rebuilt chimneys also in stone and now consists of 5/6 bedrooms, 2 livings rooms, 3 kitchens, 3 bathrooms 1/2 dining rooms with an internal cellar down stairs. This property is truly amazing it gives you the sense of the its fascinating past but yearning to be either modernised or restored a little.
