History

Deerpark Lodge, also known as Middle Lodge, was built c1888 on the original access driveway first laid out by William Emes in the 1760s.

L-plan, with a boarded door in the angle under an open verandah supported on timber posts. Three and 4-light paned timber windows. The framing is decorative, and includes curved braces within the panels. Stone stack on the E gable end with offsetting steps and a brick flue, a fire window at the side facing up the road. The rear is gabled above battered stone walls taking up the steeply falling ground to the S.
