Mines House is Type ‘E’ design of Beni Carr Glynn Burnett. The Type ‘E’ is an elevated, timber framed, asbestos cement clad residence. The original design included asbestos cement roof sheeting which was recently replaced with grey Colorbond sheeting.There have been a number of changes made since construction, largely due to damage from the aging process. For example, a rather special original feature of the design, now gone, was the staged wooden stairway at the front of the house.
The National Trust welcomed the return of Mines House in 2011 after being privately leased for over a decade. Mines House is now available for hire for small meetings, while the grounds make a wonderful location for weddings and large functions. Please contact the Trust office for more details.
