Heritage Inventory sheets are often not comprehensive, and should be regarded as a general guide only. Inventory sheets are based on information available, and often do not include information on landscape significance, interiors or the social history of sites and buildings. Inventory sheets are updated by Council as further information becomes available. An inventory sheet with little information may simply indicate that there has been no building work done to the item recently: it does not mean that items are not significant. Further research is always recommended as part of preparation of development proposals for heritage items, and is necessary in preparation of Heritage Impact Assessments and Conversation Management Plans, so that the significance of heritage items can be fully assessed prior to submitting development applications.
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: o This building is designed in the Federation Free style.

A collection of one and two storey Federation period dwellings, some free-standing, some attached, which display a range of styles and details of the period. The street, produced largely through a single subdivision, achieves considerable homogenity despite the diversity of buildings through common wall and roof materials, a consistency of scale and a domestic relationship to the street, enhanced by the dead-end nature of the road.
Physical condition and/or
Archaeological potential:
Minor Alteration
