Feniton, New Farm

Feniton is a heritage-listed villa at 388 Bowen Terrace, New Farm, City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It was designed by Robin Dods and built from 1906 to 1907. It is also known as Almaden. It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 27 July 2018.

The highset timber residence located at 388 Bowen Terrace, New Farm, originally called Feniton and later Almaden, was built on just over half an acre (approximately 2036m2) of land in 1906-7 for the Trude family. Designed by the renowned architect Robert Smith (Robin) Dods, the residence was subsequently occupied from 1916 to 1927 by Edward Granville Theodore, Premier of Queensland from 1919 to 1925. The property was reduced by one third in 1938, and in 2018 Feniton remains a private residence. Feniton is a surviving example of Dods' first quality timber houses from the middle period of Hall & Dods' practice 1901–09. With its generous setback and views to and from Bowen Terrace, the house is important for its Federation aesthetic, successfully combining Arts and Crafts and Classical elements, and also has a special association with EG Theodore, a person of importance in Queensland's history.
