House at 109-113 East Terrace, Adelaide

House at 109-113 East Terrace, Adelaide

The evident piecemeal development of this house enhances its historical interest. The earliest section was built for James Parsons during 1856. Soon after, the house became associated with family members, first William and then George, who were painters. The Parsons family was associated with the house until the end of the nineteenth century.

This house is of interest because of its relatively early date of construction, its originality and the unusual juxtaposition with the bay windowed western 'wing' which is in contrasting style, although both sections are constructed of bluestone rubble with brick dressings. The slate roof cladding of the earliest portion of the house contrasts with the corrugated iron of the roof of the west wing. The west wing was constructed between 1880 and 1890.
