‘Dalmeny’ 18 Wakeford Road Strathfield was built in 1924 by builders Loveridge and Hudson for the owner Colin Hudson (d.1974).  Hudson was a partner in Loveridge and Hudson and also served as an Alderman (1941-1952) & Mayor (1944-1949) of Strathfield Council.  Hudson Park Strathfield is named after him.

The house was recently demolished and the site redeveloped.

‘Dalmeny’ was a two storey interwar bungalow style house.  It featured a hipped and gabled terracotta tiled roof, with the imitation half-timbered gable end above a two storey bay featuring faceted bay windows at both levels, the upper having a timber-shingled apron.  Windows are timber-framed double-hung, one upper pair featuring timber shutters.  The house also features an enclosed two storey verandah with timber shingling.  There is a single brick chimney with square openings at the top and a flat cement cap.
