Strandon House was located at the end of Ronald Street, near present day numbers 5, 6, & 7

The date of construction is unknown, although based on it's style the house probably dates from the later decades of the Nineteenth Century - possibly built in several stages, and with a substantial refurbishment undertaken in 1917, when the building was converted into a boarding house for New Plymouth Girls High School. 

The building appears to have been demolished around 1955.
