|Nominator's Statement of Significance|
|Historically, Paralowie is important as an illustration of the time during which Salisbury North had not yet been incorporated into the Adelaide metropolitan area but instead functioned as the home of a number of large estates situated in what was still a semi-rural environment.
Architecturally, Paralowie is a rare grand example of popular late nineteenth century domestic architecture. The spacious interior with its original stucco decorations, fireplace surrounds and in-built cupboards, is in excellent condition and a good representative example for that period.
Environmentally, the site contributes to the continuity of the tree-lined Waterloo Corner Road. The building is well screened from the busy road and with its park-like setting offers visual relief along a densely settled road.
