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.
