Statement of Significance

This fine residence c 1896 is set on four lots amid encirling gardens with many mature Norfolk Island
pines planted by Zimpel c 1903. Typical of the best domestic architecture of the period it was designed by
Edwin Summerhayes for William Zimpel [ 18 ??- c1918] a prominent Perth manufacturer. One of the most
significant homes in Cottesloe set in a heritage precinct. It is currently owned by entrepreneur Dr Ron
Wise who brought Western Australia's first natural gas on stream with Strata Oil and Gas.

Physical Description

1995 Comment: An important house of historic and architectural interest. Associated Summerhayes, Zimpel.
An elegant Victorian 'Queen Anne' bungalow c. 1896 of tuckpointed brick with an iron roof. Sheltered by wide verandahs with large turned posts and regular square-section frieze, it has a belvedere to the south-west corner with pressed zinc cladding and candle-snuffer roof. The front sitting room has a bay window with casement windows. The main bedroom and dining room have bay windows with double-hung floor-to-ceiling window/doors with side windows. The front door has exquisite original leaded stained glass of a country scene. The carved mantlepieces came from Zimpel's own factory. The house has had two renovations. One c. 1980 when the Georgian windows to the ballroom's north wall and the brick courtyards were added. The second c. 1982 by D. Erickson saw the kitchen and cellars enlarged and the east wing extensively remodelled adding the poolroom, three bedrooms and the eastern verandah. At this time the library was turned into a walk-in wardrobe and bathroom. The older bathrooms were demolished and two new ones, a guest pantry, sunroom and cloakroom created. Detailing in the old section of the house was copied. Stained glass windows and doors from the old National Mutual House were incorporated into the poolroom which has multi-paned French doors echoing those in the ballroom. Underground garages were created next to the cellar. The old stables were demolished to make way for a tennis court.
