|Location:||Wangamma, Scaddings Bridge Road, (Lake Victoria)|
Statement of Heritage Significance:
A brick dwelling with iron clad gambrel roof. A separate bullnose roof covers a wrap around verandah supported by plain timber posts. A separate brick room, connected to the main dwelling by a breezeway has a high hip roof and straight pitched verandah. It appears to be an older structure and features a large external chimney.
Wangamma was taken up by the Scadding Family late last century and their name is given to the nearby bridge and road. The homestead is now used as a ‘weekender’ holiday cottage. The legendary recluse ‘Possum’ is buried on the property.
