Sandgate Cottage Randwick

Two-storey sandstone cottage built by Simeon Pearce as part of a row of five investment properties, its first tenant was Edwin Penfold. It had several names before it was acquired by the Commonwealth Government in 1918 and became the 'Woodville Red Cross home' for World War I veterans. In 1928 Catherine and Harold Tippler purchased it and owned it until 1966 after which it changed hands numerous times before it was restored in 1987 by Randwick Council. It housed the Randwick and District Historical Society's museum and archives collection and was a Heritage Centre for the municipality until 1992. It is now a real estate agent office.
