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.

Description

Builder/Maker: Henry Green
Physical description: One of a single storey brick pair of semi-detached houses (nos. 13 & 15 Kurraba Road) each with a terracotta tiled gabled roof with double gable end to the facade over a full-length hipped skillion roofed verandah of corrugated iron.
o This building is designed in the Federation Bungalow style.

Symmetrical, each house has an entry door recessed behind a semi-circular arched passage adjacent to the party wall. Flanking the entrances are window bays contained in breakfronts, the windows being in pairs of double-hung sash frames, segmental arched and over a continuous moulded sill. The verandah is carried on square timber posts with carved timber quadrant brackets to each and to the central party wall. Gable ends have a plain brick tympanum and a small timber screen to each gable peak.

Archaeological potential:
Minor Alteration
Modifications and dates: The westernmost verandah post has been replaced with a large bracket of timber to facilitate vehicular access to the paved parking area infront of the house No. 13. Brick walls of No. 13's street elevation have been painted.
Further information: 1-19, 23-33 Kurraba Road, North Sydney
