Details (Known As) Dwelling built for Charles H Goode
Registered Name Dwelling
Significance This substantial two-storied house and its neighbour, Taylor House, are important survivors of the redevelopment of Brougham and Palmer Places which occurred around the turn of the 20th century, transforming it into a precinct of grand style and conspicuous wealth. The house is historically associated with Charles (later Sir Charles) Henry Goode, for whom it was built in 1907, and it effectively commemorates the mercantile success of Goode and his softgoods company Goode Durrant and Co., considered one of the colony's leading business houses. Goode attained prominence as a successful businessman and Member of Parliament, but was best known as a philanthropist and tireless worker for numerous social welfare causes. Amongst other contributions, he was a founder of the Royal Institution for the Blind, the South Australian Adult Deaf and Dumb Mission, the Adelaide Children's Hospital and the Adelaide YMCA. The house is a significant example of Federation period architecture. It is well detailed internally and externally, displaying a disciplined eclecticism in its combination of picturesque and classically derived elements. The fireplaces and overmantels are particularly notable in this regard. The relatively high integrity of the house is also seen in the survival of internal finishes - in particular the imported walnut fire surrounds and the leaded stained-glass. The stair hall and internal planning in general are well-conceived and illustrate the interest of the period in the asymmetrical plan form.

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.
