Named after Nora Jones, the elderly lady who sold me the property after she lived in it for over 50 years. She sadly passed away soon after I purchased the home and I thought it would be a nice homage to her and her history with the place. With no air conditioning (in tropical northern Australia where winter temperatures average 25 degrees Celsius), very small rooms with very basic amenities, I made the commercial decision to demolish the original structure and build a beautiful 21st Century family home in honour of Nora Jones. I do need to point out that I LOVE restoration work, however, as the home had no historic features, was built in the 1960’s, extremely small, and was full of asbestos, I decided to start with a clean slate.
