Brookfield House was built between 1897-1898 for J. W. Macarthur-Onslow for officers of NSW Mounted Rifles. In name of Captain Antill.
The building is a large two-storey semi-detached brick house with Victorian detailing. This house has ornate cast-iron gates and palisade fences on a brick base and has brick entry columns.
