Statement of significance:

16 Nielsen Avenue is significant at a Local level for its aesthetic qualities, historical contribution to the streetscape and historic value. The place is overall a very good representative example of an early twentieth century single storey brick and tile dwelling which displays Federation Bungalow stylistic influence. Substantially intact original external fabric including tuck pointed brickwork, multi-pane double-hung timber windows and timber veranda with tessellated tiling contributes to its overall aesthetic value. There is a sympathetic recent timber picket boundary fence. The place historically makes a valuable contribution to the streetscape, and to the historical evolution of residential development within the Webbers Estate in the early twentieth century which along with other comparable properties in the vicinity strengthens the cultural values of the area.
