Located at 12 Fitzgerald Street, Windsor, New South Wales, this elegant home of stuccoed brick built in 1875 for Robert Dick, the first Mayor of Windsor was designed by noted Sydney firm Mansfield Brothers. This company designed many Commercial Bank premises throughout New South Wales. The home has been passed down through many generations of the Paine family. Of generous proportions, this home was built in the Victorian style with cast iron decorative verandah posts, slate roof and paired brackets under the eaves. The spacious garden includes many mature trees and an interesting variety of shrubs and flowers. The land along The Terrace adjacent to the Hawkesbury River was once the site of Thomas Cadell’s Brewery which was demolished in 1899.
Statement of Significance - A well kept and fine example of a large Victorian house retaining its original outbuildings and extensive garden. The quality of the house, its office and beautiful grounds make it a property of considerable importance to Windsor. State Heritage Inventory listing for Sunny Brae
