This event is for Glebe Society members only.

'Our House' - Rothwell Lodge

A special opportunity for Glebe Society members to be a guest in a wonderful Glebe residence, where the owners generously share the stories of their home and surrounds, while you also enjoy socialising with other Glebe residents. Robert and Peter, from Rothwell Lodge, have kindly offered to be our hosts for the second Our House visit.

About Rothwell Lodge, c.1847

One of the earliest surviving houses in Glebe, Rothwell Lodge was built by George Allen for the Methodist minister, Rev William Binnington Boyce who was appointed as general superintendent for Wesleyan Mission in Australia in 1846. Rev Boyce also conducted services at the Toxteth Chapel in the grounds of Toxteth Park. The Boyces and the Allens were related by marriage.

Rothwell Lodge is a two storey house with loft rooms. The ground floor was originally the kitchens and staff quarters but today is a separate dwelling. The middle floor and loft form the main residence.

Rothwell Lodge is adjoined to the south by a two storey building, a former warehouse (c.1890) and more recently an architect’s office. It is about to be converted into a spacious two bedroom apartment with city views.

Ernest Pederson Reserve, 20-20a and 22-22a Ferry Rd were once part of the grounds. Rothwell Lodge originally had sweeping views of the city and harbour, a shingle roof and even a milking cow up until 1920. The house is unique in that it has not been built in by inner city units and still borrows the park in front to instil an impression of a time lost.
