Moira House Open Day

Moira Benalla Club are opening Moira House to the public to view. Please come along and have a wander around this magnificent building. Tea & Coffee will be available, and the bar will be open for drinks.

Moira House was built in 1878 as a private residence of George & Annabella Sharpe. George Sharpe was elected Member of Legislative Assembly MLA from 1877 -1880 for the county of of Moira in the Victorian Parliament, hence the name of the House. Moira House is a large two-storey Classical brick house, characterized by an impressive five bay façade with superb cast iron lace across the main verandah façade. The front entrance is centrally located within this and is expressed on the veranda by a two storey pedimented projection. The simple hipped slate roof is crowned in finials. The house is a distinctive feature of Benalla and within this town unusually large in size. It is prominently beside the lake and surrounded by a picket fence. This is a typical Italianate style house, composed and well constructed. The two-storey main façade has had a few alterations.
Unfortunately, after just  four years in residence George Sharpe died on November 11th 1882.

Further information about Moira House and Moira Benalla Club will be available on the day.
