‘Wyralla’ is a Federation Queen Anne style 2-storey home dating from 1906. It was built on part of Lot 66 of the original Mona Estate subdivision which was auctioned off in 1904. The estate was named after the original ‘Mona’ residence which is still standing and is No. 38 further along the road.
The house was part of a group of investment homes built along Mona Road between 1900 and 1910. It shares a common party wall with No. 12, and the two homes were said to have been built at the same time.
In 1923, as was the custom with many other homes along this street, Wyralla was converted into two flats. The owner, Miss Adele Molyneux Royds, resided upstairs while renting the downstairs flat to tenants.
In 2000 – 2001, the property was restored to a single residence and the staircase removed in 1923 was reproduced.
The house has been listed for sale since late 2011. It went up for auction on March 19 but did not sell and is now on the market seeking offers over $2.9 million. It last sold in 2007 for $3 million.
The 300 sqm triangular block fronts onto Mona Lane, and there is a gate at the other side of the block that provides access to Mona Road. There is no garage or vehicle entry.
