Suburb Profile - Warrawee

Warrawee is a suburb on the Upper North Shore of Sydney in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Warrawee is located 21 kilometres north-west of the Sydney Central Business District in the local government area of Ku-ring-gai Council.[2] Warrawee is predominantly a residential area with few commercial entities.

Warrawee is believed to have come from an Aboriginal word meaning rest a while, stop here or to stand.

In 1888, the public servant and patron of exploration Frederick Ecclestone du Faur built his house Pibrac in Pibrac Avenue. The house was designed by John Horbury Hunt, a Canadian architect who settled in Australia and favoured the Arts and Crafts style, as well as the North American Shingle style, which he introduced to Australia. Later alterations were carried out by B.J. Waterhouse. The house is composed predominantly of timber, with extensive use of timber shingles, on a sandstone base. It is considered a good example of Hunt's work and is listed on the Register of the National Estate.

The architect William Hardy Wilson built his home, Purulia, in Fox Valley Road in 1913. The house was relatively unusual at the time, but became a significant influence over the years. It is heritage-listed
