Residence 1898 (Age 46)

Note:

In 1896 as a young lawyer, Richard William Pennefather, came to WA from Victoria. He practiced law in partnership with John Horgan, became a MLA representing Greenough, and was appointed Attorney General in 1897 when Septimus Burt retired. Pennefather built a fine house on a large white sandhill with ocean views in Broome Street, circa 1898, before that street reached the site.

The house was bought in 1911 by Claude Albo de Bernales and named ‘Overton Lodge’ after the house in Brixton, London, where he was born in 1876. De Bernales brought about extensive alterations and additions in 1936 in Spanish and Italian classic style, including jarrah paneling and extensive stone walls and gardens. Cottesloe Council acquired ‘Overton Lodge’ in 1950 after de Bernales had moved to England.

It is now Cottesloe’s Civic Centre and War Memorial Town Hall. The purchase price was 45,000 pounds.
