It would appear that the original entry for this building is incorrect. The building was not erected by Benjamin Greenacre but it was in fact designed by the architects Street-Wilson for Joseph Chiazzari in 1896.  The property was later sold to Benjamin Greenacre.

Joseph Chiazzari bought land on the Berea, Musgrave Road, and had a large house built called “Il Nido”. This house was later sold to Benjamin Greenacre and renamed Caister House. Joseph bought more land in Musgrave Road and had a double storied house built, which he called Galloway House. (Source: Leslie Duckworth's great grandmother)
