Lauderdale Homestead, Alfredton (Ballarat), was built for John 'Jock' Winter in 1863 to the design of J.A. Doane. Winter arrived with his family from Scotland in 1841; he and his sons became extraordinarily successful pastoralists. 'Jock' became Ballarat's first millionaire after gold was found on one of his properties. He retired to Lauderdale, dying there in 1875. His slate-roofed, bluestone homestead with its distinctive columns and unusual bracketed eaves, is now surrounded by suburbia.
