In historic Church Street, Maitland’s National Trust properties, Grossmann and Brough Houses are mirror-imaged Victorian townhouses built-in 1870 by business partners Samuel Owens and Isaac Beckett.
The two properties have had varied lives with Entcliffe, known for most of its life as Grossmann House, as a private residence for the Becketts, Maitland Girls High School until the mid-1960s, and now as a fully restored and furnished Victorian house museum.
Brough House was also a private residence for a number of years, a boarding house, a hostel for the schoolgirls, Maitland Art Gallery, and now has renewed life as an area for displays and exhibitions. Catering can be arranged for smaller functions and house tours; venue suitable for smaller conferences; the house and garden are a perfect venue for boutique weddings.
