Statement of significance:

A very good example of a three storey Victorian Filigree style terrace house, one of a group of four that provide an imposing streetscape.
See Group listing NSHS0080.
It is part of a varied collection of late nineteenth century terrace houses which exhibit a variety of period detailing and layouts, whilst having a similar basic form. They mark the former central township of Milson's Point to the Bridge's construction.
The interior is also of significance.

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.
