Glenlyon House and Billiards Room - built 1876.

'Alexander Stewart bought land on Enoggera Creek in 1875 and called the estate Glenlyon. He began to build Glenlyon House in 1875 and it was finished in 1877. The bricks used to build Glenlyon House are said to have been hand made by South Sea Island labour. In the mid-1890s a small building containing a billiard room, gun room and cellar was built next to the main house.'
