|Tempe House, in the inner-southern suburb of Wolli Creek (formerly Tempe) was built in 1836 for Alexander Brodie Spark, by the well-respected colonial architect, John Verge. Spark was a magistrate, and an assessor for the Supreme Court. After a chequered history,the house is now being encroached upon by masses of cookie-cutter apartment towers. Part of the monthly Strata Fees for these apartments is garnisheed by the developers for the maintenance of Tempe House and its landscaped gardens.|
