Currently filed with the national trust but not heritage listed. Howard Smith Ltd was an Australian Industrial company founded in 1854, primarily a shipping company which later diversified into coal mining and steel production.

Located on the corner of George and Florence Street it is reported that this building was previously used for office space for the Howard Smith Steamship Company, the building still contains the original stationery cupboards, 3 brick chimneys which service three open fire places, and a walk in safe. The home is also located in the central business district, whilst currently zoned residential this could be re-zoned for business purposes.

The single story red brick construction has a hipped and gabled terracotta tiled roof. The home has been renovated extensively indoors and out, original timber floor joists have been replaced and original flooring removed, the original boards which were still intact have been re-used throughout the home.

A combination of new and upcycled kitchen has been installed which fits the aesthetics of the home and the home has had some re-wiring where required. The main entrance now is complete with original timber flooring which leads you into the galley kitchen where a timber island bench runs the entire length of the room with electric oven, gas cooktop + a LG dishwasher.

The rest of this large open space is carpeted and intended as a general living space for lounge, relaxion, entertaining or dining comforted by a reverse cycle split system + ducted evaporative cooling throughout. The home is an L shaped building, one wing containing 2 large bedrooms, the other wing, a second lounge, study or third bedroom, bathroom and laundry.

Whilst the home has one primary bathroom a second toilet is located in the quaint outhouse area, located across from the courtyard, believed originally to be the ablutions block when the property was office space. Offering two large sheds, one older shed (15.4m x 6.1m) with sliding doors and concrete floor and a newer shed (15m x 9m.) This provides an enormous amount of storage space for toys or given appropriate approval this space could be used to house a small business.
