A: Originally built in 1878 as a seaside holiday home by eminent Melbourne architect Thomas Watts, the house and broader site became a hospital in the late 1920s. In the mid-1970s it once again underwent a transformation into an aged care facility. In this redefining of Beachleigh, the site’s historic value is preserved, as old structures are given new life. This important heritage will be protected and enhanced.
