Sydney Roof – Service Area

Roseville, Sydney, NSW

Roseville is a wealthy upper north shore suburb named after the rose villa of George Wilson who was an orchardist. The rose villa was demolished in the 1880s to pave the way for the north shore railway line, but the name remained.

The suburb falls under the local government areas of Ku-ring-gai and Willoughby. It is 12 kilometers from Sydney central business district and is not the same suburb as Roseville Chase. Close neighbors of the suburb include Chatswood to the south, Macquarie Park, a popular locals and tourists spot on the West, East Lindfield is north, and Castle Cove is east of Roseville.

Farming was the earliest activity in the area. Introduced by William Henry, a European settler who arrived in Ku-ring-gai and set up a farm. Through his farming, there was a market in the area for fruits and agricultural products.

More European settlers began to arrive in the area. When David Mathew came, he owned the property known as Clanville. Richard Archbold soon followed and acquired 600 acres of land. His land was near Clanville which he later received. He put up an orchard in the area, and his son in law built a stone cottage, rose villa, that later became the name of the suburb.
