"Wetmore" - A Home Of Significance
The exquisite/historic property of “Wetmore” was built in 1878 in the Victorian Gothic Revival style for Mr George Parramore Junior in memory of his old family home “Wetmore Hall” in Derbyshire, England. The house was designed by Mr Percy Oakden, the architect behind Queens College at Melbourne University.
The home is on approximately 3.2 hectares of superb gardens and is built of brick & sandstone using the best of products including bricks from Port Arthur, material recovered from the demolition of Horton College as well as timber, mantles and further materials from the original home built closer to the river.
Comprising of 22 rooms including 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a wonderful country style kitchen/dining/family room, 6 living areas and a number of utility rooms.
The home has been meticulously restored to a high standard, in keeping with its historic value. The furnishings in many instances have been imported, such as handwoven English carpet, Dresden chandeliers and Italian marble mantles. An absolutely amazing property and a credit to the hard work and eye for detail by the current owners.
