Judge's House Kent Street

Elegant home built for surveyor William Harper which is the only example of an 1820s Colonial Georgian single storey bungalow to survive in the city. It was leased to the judge James Dowling in 1828. In the 1879 the house was sold to the City Night Refuge and Soup Kitchen trustees and converted for use as a refuge. In the 1970s some of the outbuildings were demolished and the house sold to commercial owners and converted for use as a restaurant.
