This once beautiful landmark called Hilaria which means "cheerful" was situated at the corner of Carlos
Street and Ariapita Avenue south, Woodbrook, and was built circa 1930. This stately house rich with
architectural heritage had an "L" shaped porch. The corner of the "L" was covered by an open turret
decorated with fretwork which extended to the front of the roof. The artist was able to capture its details
together with the beautiful well maintained garden. Sadly the house was demolished in 2018.
