Guerin homestead

9/29 Spruance road, Elizabeth East

Single storey symmetrical cottage with stone façade, brick dressings and brick side walls and chimneys. 
The building has been ised by the Elizabeth community, especially by the Arts Society who called it ‘The Studio’.
 

The property was rented to painting company which used it as a paint school.  Under their use the building became run down.  In 2006 the SAHT sought to demolish the building as it was in a state of disrepair.  The house is registered in the Local Heritage Register.  The integrity of the property has been diminished as the original garden has been used to built 8 flats owned by the SAHT, built in 1972, this was before local heritage listing. The Housing Trust undertook a detailed assessment of the property and the steps that would be required to restore the property into a Habitable state. The cost of these works is estimated to be between $70,000 and $110,000. As a result of these costs the Housing Trust is proposing that the house be demolished, the site cleared and thenlandscaped for the use of the residents who live in the flats surrounding the original house.
The building was subsequently redeveloped by the Housing Trust and is currently rented to Disability SA.
