It appears to be wood framing with nogging made with river sand, river gravel, clay, and lime and in some areas plastered with cement.
The style of the structure suggests it being built in the 1930-40’s. The house was owned by the De Lisle family and rented to Mr. Henry and Mrs. Mudlyn Hannays who made it their family home. Being a home, the structure holds the familial stories and memories linked to Old Arima. The house stands on Farfan street which was historically a resendential area and stands as an example and testament to Arima’s history and cultural heritage.
Uniqueness: The condition of the house. It is in excellent condition as the current occupier paid special attention to keeping the same style.
