Located on the flat ground mid-way up the present day Strandon Place, Strandon House was one of New Plymouth's grandest early homes

 

Strandon House, The New Zealand Graphic, 05 January 1910

The date of construction is unknown, however the house appears to date from the later decades of the Ninteenth Century - possibly built in several stages, and with a substantial refurbishment undertaken in 1917. 

The house was located approximately half-way up the present day Strandon Place, where an area of level ground can still be distinguished. In the circa 1910 photo of Strandon House (linked), the rear gable of the villa at 436 Devon Street East can be seen in the background of the image - giving some idea of the buildings location. 

The building appears to have been demolished sometime around 1955
