Description:
Kintore was a cottage in Worrigee Street, Nowra, built in 1916 next door to Meroogal on the former Meroogal horse paddock. It was built for Roderick Macgregor and his wife and Mary Susan (nee Thorburn), who had relocated from the Macgregor family home Torrisdale at Cambewarra to give Elgin Macgregor, their youngest daughter, a wider social circle. Roderick died at Kintore in October 1919 but in 1921 the household was expanded by the arrival of Margaret Steel (nee Macgregor) with her young daughter June. The property was let after the war and sold in 1959. It was demolished in the 1970s following fire damage.
