The Giese Residence, formerly known as Audit House, is a large timber framed, fibro clad construction elevated on concrete stumps.
The residence is one of a number built in this part of Darwin for high-ranking public servants in the 1930s. It is now a rare example of a large-scale housing form used in Darwin during 1920-1940. During the Second World War the house was used as a rest home for nurses. This house (1934) is carefully designed for climate and is located within a large and well-established garden.
