Statement of significance:

Physical description: Row of two storey, Federation perod houses including both free standing and semi-detached dwellings. This group is tied together by a palisade fence with brick base and posts, and moulded caps (unfortunately damaged to No. 67). It included 4 semi-detached houses which feature balustraded parapets, and 4 (orginally 5, but No. 77 has been unsympathetically altered) free standing houses. Each featured timber detailing to the verandah, a semi-circular entry arch, and a large window with an elliptical head to the projecting bay. Paired segmental windows to the first floor. Some of the original detailing has been lost from the group. some buildings in the group have been converted to apartments.

Ideally the verandahs would have their enclosures removed and No 67 would require paint removed from brickwork, render from front wall, reconstructing post and installing pallisade fence to match existing. Otherwise general maintenance.
