‘Viwa’ Burlington Road was known as the Doctor’s House. It was originally the home of Dr George Hurst and built c1883. The property was a home and surgery for more than 100 years.
Unfortunately this end of Burlington Road were rezoned for units in the late 1960s and many original homes were demolished. The house was identified as a potential heritage item in the Strathfield Heritage Study in 1986 but the house was demolished before heritage items were gazetted in the planning ordinance.
The photos below were taken by the Strathfield District Historical Society prior to its demolition.
