Statement of significance:

3 Bellevue Street, Kogarah is significant at a Local level for its aesthetic qualities, streetscape contribution and historic value. A substantially intact early twentieth century dwelling of considerable aesthetic merit for its good quality Federation facade detailing including detailed timber verandah, timber frame double-hung windows, decorative gable screen and timber framed window cases with double-hung sashes. Together with an early twentieth century detached brick and tile garage, the place makes a valuable contribution to the streetscape. This dwelling is a good representative example of the Federation Bungalow style in the Kogarah LGA. Integrity is somewhat compromised by later brick boundary fence, concrete roof tiles and brick verandah balustrade addition, but is still able to be conserved and contribute significantly to the Kogarah LGA.
