Statement of significance:

Good example of a substantial bungalow from the turn of the century, simply detailed but well-scaled and attractive with rusticated sandstone walls blending well with nearby garden terraces and bush rock. Strong landscape setting. It occupies an important site above the valley with views down to Long Bay. Original room configuration and interior details are 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.
