The Mulligan House

29 Cavan Street

This solid symmetrical Georgian-style house, with its many outstanding examples of Italianate detailing, was built for Henry and Violet (Armstrong) Mulligan in the last quarter of the 19th century.
Italianate features include the projecting frontispiece, the contrasting cream brick quoins, segmented arched windows with gables, massive paired cornice brackets and a low-pitched hip roof. Above the wide entrance doorway is an elliptical fanlight. The shape of the arched windows has been retained. A tennis court, fashionable at the turn of the 20th century, was located west of the driveway pillars. The two-storey verandah is not original to the design.
