Designed by fashionable young architect F Kenneth Milne as a seaside retreat for well-heeled retailer Frederick George Scarfe and his wife Mary Florence in 1912, ‘N’Kola Donga’ survives as an example of rambling pre-war bungalows once common along Adelaide’s coastline. In spite of alterations over the years, the spacious effect Milne aimed for is still apparent, especially in the generously proportioned hallway. Part of the house converted to a flat is not accessible to the public. The house has recently been renovated in consequence of extensive storm damage. Bookings required by phone or email.
