Photo: "Anambah" Maitland. Finished in 1889, the house was designed by J.W. Pender.
Anambah with its beautiful cedar joinery consisted of 23 rooms, 10 marble fireplaces, tiled hall and verandah and a free standing billiard room .
This post is by way of a stub. I wanted to record some of the links to the remarkable story of the Pender family, the Maitland architects who has such a remarkable impact on New England's built environment.
On Anambah itself, here. The NSW Department of Planning Heritage Branch web site provides information on a number of Pender designed building. The University Of Newcastle has a magnificent Pender archive.
