The house at Woodend

Maree Cardinale

Sunbury, Australia

Artist's Description

In its time Islay House would have been one of the the grandest houses in Woodend, Vic, Aus. Now it is past its prime and derelict.
Islay House was built in 1864 and is a two story brick “Georgian” building that first traded as a licensed premises serving alcohol to the gold diggers going to and from the Bendigo goldfields.
Some extra info I found-
The Argus, Wednesday 15 February 1882
Death notice.
GILCHRIST.—On the 31st ult., at Islay-house, Woodend,
Elsie Mary, the infant daughter of John and
Christina Gilchrist, aged seven months.
Further googling and I found this.
John Gilchrist migrated from Port Ellen to Woodend where he ran a general store.
Port Ellen is a small town on the island of Islay, in Argyll, Scotland.
This house is now for sale so hopefully it will be restored lovingly… though I have to admit I love it like this.
