Beautifully maintained and a dream to walk through, featuring decorative high ceilings, ornate fireplaces complete with picture perfect gardens and an alluring sense of style. “Gurrs House” is sure to excite the senses and holds a special story, allowing you to secure a part of history within the highly desirable suburb of Kensington Park.
Previously known as Cranbourne Terrace and now renown as Gurrs Road, this street name was given to this tightly held suburb circa 1910 and is named after Joshua Gurr (1819-1910). Joshua was an ironmonger and shareholder in the Burra Copper Mine who purchased 20 acres in this area and his personal house was between Birnie Avenue and Gurrs Road.
In approximately 1920, the vineyard and other parts of the property were subdivided and sold. The first proud owner on record in 1913 was the daughter of Joshua Gurr, named Ruby Adelaide Gurr who we are sure would have enjoyed living within her enchanting villa.
