Website:

This single storey former farm house of the very late Victorian era was built on one of the early Crown Allotments in the Berwick Shire (Scoresby Riding) later known as Ferntree Gully.

A mixed farm of 210 acres, the selection was taken up in 1872. The house represents the later stability of the settlers. Ephraim Hansen gained the Crown Grant in 1887 and built the house in 1899 having first lived in a modest timber dwelling. The solid practical Hawthorn brick house is built in the Italianate style of multi-chrome brick and is a reflection of progressive building techniques of the time.
