Tempe House - Exterior


1990 saw a permanent Conservation order established for Tempe Estate, including the house and surrounding grounds to the riverfront. The landscape was deemed to be of greater significance than the buildings associated with the Good Samaritan Order and subsequently, they were demolished with the exception of the Chapel and the iron fencing.
The property passed possession from Qantek to Interciti Arncliffe Developments Pty. Ltd in 2000.

Nice detail in these shots, Ann. I epecially like the drain. Those high-rise flats encroach something terrible, don't they. I gather these are the ones that hit me in the eyes from the train.

Good series this week ...

I wish they hadn't built those flats quite so close to this magnificent house.
