Teneriffe, 133 Mary's Mount Road, Bradfordville : conservation management strategy : final report

Fraish Consulting Park Pty Ltd
Subject: 'Teneriffe' is a rare example of a late 19th century rural homestead and is an excellent example of the architecture of E.C. Manfred in the local area. The property is associated with Albert Lansdowne and Joseph Shepherd who were prominent and upstanding members of the local community. Joseph Shepherd was known as the Apricot King of NSW, a reputation derived from the yields gained from Teneriffe. The homestead is significant for its historical, aesthetic, research potential, rarity and representativeness. The homestead has significant aesthetic characteristics, in particular, its retention of its 19th century landscape context as an orchard. Archaeological remains associated with the homestead would have the potential to answer a number of research questions relating to the ownership, occupation and operation of the property during the late 19th to early 20th century.
