The house and the original grounds of Villa Alba was originally placed in trust for Anna Maria McEvoy by her family on her marriage to William Greenlaw in 1862. Villa Alba houses one of the most important examples of late nineteenth century decoration in Australia. It is the work of Scottish- trained Paterson Brothers; dates from about 1883; and includes a great variety of painted, stencilled and gilded decoration.
