Beecroft Suburb History
Beecroft took its name from the sisters Hannah and Mary Beecroft, the first and second wives of Henry Copeland, minister for lands in the 1880s and 1890s. It was a civic-minded and well-ordered suburb that was organised very early, having the Post Office and schools established by the late 1890s. The early residents of Beecroft came for a variety of reasons which involved running orchards and small farms, and building large homes in a bushland setting with an easy rail commute to the city. As Beecroft had a high bushland environment, it was thought to have beneficial air with a "healthy climate".
Beecroft Real Estate & Design
By 1900, the majority of early houses in Beecroft consisted of large brick Federation-style homes, with some timber constructions. Many properties had tennis courts, croquet lawns, extensive gardens and fruit trees in the backyard. Beecroft has seen considerable redevelopment in most residential areas and remains a progressive suburb. It now has sprawling homes on expansive blocks wrapped in portions of immensely green bushland, creating a peaceful atmosphere for residents.
