Kurnell, Alpha House

 'Alpha House' is located along Cape Solander Drive, in the southern suburb of Kurnell. The first Alpha House was built in 1815, when seven hundred acres were acquired by James Birnie to establish 'Alpha Farm'. John Connell built a new stone cottage on the foundations in 1828, retaining the underground cool rooms. By the 1890s it was abandoned and in 1902 this heritage listed timber guesthouse was built on the site.
