Tempe, house

Tempe House sits on the southern shore of the Cooks River, in the southern suburb of Wolli Creek. It was designed by John Verge and built by Alexander Brodie Spark in 1836 in the Georgian style. It was named after the 'Vale of Tempe', a beautiful valley in ancient Greek legend, set at the foot of Mount Olympus in Greece.


  1. If Tempe was renovated since 1836, it has stuck beautifully to the Georgian style that people loved then and now love again.

    1. It was renovated a few years back when the apartment deveoplment behind it was built.

  2. It looks charming, except for being dwarfed by the building behind it. Poor house!

  3. Great contrast with the background. I like that.
