Historic New Farm home entered onto state’s heritage register

Brisbane Times

Once the home of a Queensland Premier, a 101-year-old New Farm home has been entered onto the state’s heritage register.

The 1907-built Bowen Terrace home, Feniton, was designed by architect Robin Dods, who was recognised as one of Brisbane’s leading architects in the early 20th century.

The old home is recognised as a classic example of Dods skill in Federation-style architecture, featuring spacious formal and informal rooms, a dominant roof, wide verandahs and a piazza with a northeast aspect.

Set back from Bowen Terrace, the remarkable old home offers a glimpse into Brisbane’s earlier years.

Former Queensland Premier Edward Theodore, who led the state from 1919 to 1925, lived in the house during his tenure.
