History of 45 Whitticase Lane
The original sandstone cottage was built approx. 1840 by Sir Thomas Mitchell, the surveyor general of New South Wales at the time, and was used as a worker’s cottage.
Fred Whitticase, whom the lane is named after, was brought out from England by Anthony Horden, the principal of a very large department store in Sydney, to be the Anthony Horden and Sons company saddler.
Fred purchased the original cottage during the 1930’s, and travelled to Sydney every day by train from Douglas Park and also carried out his saddlery business from the white shed which is still on the property today.
The current owners purchased the property in June 1990 and had carried out considerable restoration work on the building interior; however in January 1993 the cottage was destroyed by an electrical fire together with its contents.
The sandstone of the original cottage had such appeal it was decided to build a new home in the same material. Forty five pallets of sandstone, sufficient for the new house and garage were sourced from Bundanoon Quarries and used to dress the house. The process of preparing the stone took 18 months on weekends and evenings, so after many hundreds of hours of stone preparation, the owner was ‘DUNCHIPPIN’.
