Originally overgrown with vegetation, The Tree House was cleared a few months back revealing a beautiful Victorian Bluestone Cottage.

Typical of a late 1800 Adelaide building, it was built with bluestone with brick quoins around the external wall corners. The front door centered with a passageway all the way to the rear of the house. Rooms came off this passage way, with a large kitchen at the rear extending the full width of the cottage. Surprisingly though, this cottage extended underground with not 1 but 3 cellar rooms.

In their infinite wisdom, the Norwood, Payneham And St Peters Council have recently overturned its Local Heritage Listing allowing a hideous mixed-use building (comprising 54 apartments; 8 serviced apartments; a shop and 5 commercial offices) to be built.

Before its inevitable fate, let us take you inside The Tree House
