Built in the Victorian period in the Picturesque Gothick style
Unusual style for Melbourne, the gothick picturesque composition features gables, pinnacles and bay window with several outhouses.
Built by Joseph Hawdon, an Englishman it was purchased by the government in 1974 and run as a gallery. The original large estate overlooking the creek has since been sold off and subdivided and the mansion itself is now in private hands. It is believed to be the oldest colonial mansion remaining in Victoria.Architect: John Gill
