Details (Known As) 'Barton Vale' House (sometime Vaughan House)
Registered Name Dwelling - "Vaughan House"
Significance 'Barton Vale' House is significant as the first 'grand home' built by Edmund Bowman (first), a prominent pastoralist whose family operated a number of properties throughout South Australia after arriving in 1839. It was originally part of a farm and therefore reflects land settlement patterns before suburbanisation. The building was occupied by the Bowman family until 1922, when it was sold to the Salvation Army and subsequently used as a home for wayward girls. The house is an important example of the large Victorian villas which dotted what is now the metropolitan area of Adelaide in the 19th century. (Enfield Heritage Survey, 1996)

While due care has been taken to ensure that the SA Heritage Places Database accurately reflects the South Australian Heritage Register and listings of Local Heritage Places in Development Plans, the State of South Australia does not accept liability for the use of the SA Heritage Database for any purpose. Users should consult the Department for Environment and Water - Heritage South Australia to confirm the listing of State Heritage Places and the relevant Development Plan for Local Heritage Places/Contributory Items.

In the majority of cases, the maps of State Heritage Places on this web site show the footprints of the most significant structures on a registered Place. However, sometimes they simply indicate the complete area of land comprising the Place. Work is proceeding to further refine the mapping of such places. It is also important to note that development control is not limited to the registered structures but extends to their setting and structures nearby (what is termed ‘development affecting’ a State Heritage Place). Hence it is vital that exact details of the listed place and implications for any proposed development be discussed with Heritage South Australia staff, as they cannot be deduced solely from the information on this web site. The inclusion of a place in the SA Heritage Register gives no right of public access. Permission to visit properties must be sought from the owners. The accuracy of the mapping of State Heritage Places is not guaranteed. Please contact Heritage SA ( https://www.environment.sa.gov.au/topics/heritage/sa-heritage-register) if you believe there is an error.
