Mrs Williams left the house, land and money for Kyle Williams Home in trust, so the house could be converted to a convalescent home for children. The property was never, however, used for that purpose. In 1947 it was leased to Legacy House for no rent and was run as a children's home.
In 1985 the property was let for no rent to the Presbyterian Church of Australia (New South Wales), who ran it as a family group home for children and young people. This use ceased in 2003 when the government withdrew funding.
The house has stood vacant since 2003. In 2011 a legal case was opened to enable the Trust Company to apply the assets of the trust to charitable entities that provide care, support and rehabilitation to children.
