The magnificent homestead was completed in 1921 for W.A. and H.M. Kilpatrick and designed by Harold Desbrowe Annear, a prominent architect. He was responsible for number of other prominent buildings at the time, including the Chapel St Bridge over the Yarra River.
Although the property is not as large as it was in its heyday, it is still a working sheep and cattle property and run by Bill Kilpatrick, a fourth generation family member, and his wife, Noeline.
