Statement of significance:

An excellent group of Federation houses which form a continuous streetscape of varied and interesting buildings. The group display the trend to produce an Australian vernacular architectural style involved from Queen Anne and Arts and Crafts idioms based on the bungalow form. Nos 4 and 6 are of particular interest, whilst No 10 is modest but complements the group. No 12 forms a natural boundary to the groups.

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.
