Scaled Down

‘Greystones’ built from stone taken from Garland’s Quarry near Glenelg Spur, was designed by Hugh Hamilton in 1926 for business partner and brother-in-law Albert Paynter and it remained in family hands until 1996.

Situated at the corner of Glandovey and Idris Roads, and with a distinctly Arts and Crafts character, 'Greystones' has been something of an architectural landmark in the suburb of Fendalton.  However its heritage status was removed in 2019 after engineers’ reports determined that earthquake damage sustained in 2011 made its repair and restoration impossible. As a result, the house will be demolished later this year to make way for a new development on the site.
