Statement of significance:

A fine example of Late Italianate villa style. Interpreted on a narrow-fronted, high-density subdivision. Despite the context, the building is well proportioned and attractive, though presently run-down, and it usefully illustrates the range of stylistic solutions applied to the residences of the working class of the period.
Grouping: part of a former semi-detached pair.

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.

Description

Physical description: Single storey rendered brick house with hipped roof of slate. Frontage to Hayberry Street is double fronted, formed as a projecting faceted window bay with faceted hipped roof and a verandah bay with curved corrugated-iron verandah roof. Windows are rectangular, the bay windows being narrow, each with a label mould the full height of the opening which incorporates a keystone motif at the top, all over a continuous, heavily moulded sill. A side entry opening to David Street is semi-circular arched with label mould to impost height. The western elevation shows evidence that the house was originally intended to be attached to another house on this side (eg. fireplace opening). Front fence appears to be the original Victorian era acorn-topped picket fence, subsequently lowered in the Federation era and furnished with a top rail. The house is remarkably intact.This building is designed in the Victorian Italianate style.
