Built on Guringai land, Warrawee was cleared by timber-getters and became orchards and residential land by the 1870s. Subdivision followed the railway in 1900, but commercial development was not allowed, and some of Sydney's best domestic architecture is displayed in Warrawee houses built before World War II.
