Statement of significance:

Good local example of an individually styled Bungalow. Roof pitch is lower than usual and combines well with skillion verandah. Well constructed with flowing lines. Overall conveys an impression of lightness. Probably late 1920's but has much in common with earlier Federation forms. Essentially intact. Concrete fence is unusual and significant on its own (other examples recorded in Myrtle Street, Dorrigo).
Date significance updated: 02 Oct 09
