Beaumont House built in 1849, was home of the first Anglican Bishop of Adelaide, Bishop Augustus Short, and later Sir Samuel Davenport, politician, horticulturist and founder of the olive oil industry in SA.
The house has a distinctive Mediterranean character with an open brickwork parapet in soft terracotta colours and a central flat roof originally accessed by a staircase.
Beaumont House is now the State Office of the National Trust of South Australia. The office opening hours are from 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday. **Please note during office hours Beaumont House is not open for public viewing.
