[Note - the Internet website
has provided the following information:
Overnewton was built by William Taylor, who came from Scotland to Australia in 1840. In 1849 he bought 13,000 acres of land around Keilor and "Overnewton", named after the little town outside Glasgow where he was born, was built in true colonial fashion; single storeyed with large shuttered windows and a wide verandah. It wasn't until Taylor returned from a trip to Scotland in 1859 that the grandeur of his dreams became apparent. He set about turning the functional colonial style homestead into a miniature Scottish Baronial Castle and began by adding the stately two-storeyed wing. Extensive building continued, such as the Bluestone Dairy and Butcher Shop which are located at the rear of the house under the shelter of Elm trees and our 150 year old Oak tree, planted by Taylor himself......The Garden is currently being restored back to its original scheme circa 1880. It contains many species of roses, including the heritage roses of Alister Clarke, and the Madge Taylor rose, named after the original owners grand-daughter.]
