Statement of significance:

Good example of a Federation Bungalow style house. Unusual slate window hood with gablet over bay window. Much other original detail. Unsympthetic additions reduce integrity of building but are easily reversible.
Note: The State Heritage Inventory provides information about heritage items listed by local and State government agencies. The State Heritage Inventory is continually being updated by local and State agencies as new information becomes available. Read the OEH copyright and disclaimer.


Physical description: Federation house on corner site. Standard diagonal plan arrangement with some unusual features. Face brick walls. Complex slate roof. Hood to front bay window of special note. Octagonal ingle-nook. Corrugated iron bull-nosed verandah returning to side. Turned timber posts above rendered piers. Carved brackets. Original door with sidelights and toplight. Very good oeil-de-boeuf. Excellent moulded chimneys with terracotta pots.


Historical notes: Mr Millington's widow and daughter lived here in the 1950's (Millington was the owner of Millington's Emporium in Station Street).
