The house originally called "Avoca" was designed as the home of Catherine Wynne in 1903. A plaque, at the entrance, refers to the time when it was used as a nursing home by the "Little Company of Mary" between 1910 and 1917. Towards the end of 2012 the building was acquired by the PE Montessori School, since which it has been used as their primary school. (Gerald Humphrey, September 2017)
