Roughley House and The Pines Information
Roughley House is a colonial heritage listed homestead established in 1856. Unlike other museums, Roughley House denotes the changing lifestyle of one family over five generations, each generation leaving their own stamp.
Clive Roughley the youngest of five children lived in Roughley House until his passing in 2002. In 1984 without any direct heirs to pass on his family home, Clive decided to sell Roughley House and The Pines to The Hills Shire Council. This was provided that the property would become a time capsule of colonial life and the Roughley family's story.
An event that runs to assist in raising awareness and funds for the property is Jazz at The Pines, a live concert series bringing together some of Sydney's top jazz bands.
Viewing of Roughley House is available by prior engagement. Schools, seniors and coach groups welcome. Morning/afternoon teas can be arranged for an additional cost.
