Statement of significance:

The group of houses at 11-23 and 12-24 Talbot Road is of significance for the local area for historical and aesthetic reasons and as a representative example of Federation style houses in the area. Built c. 1925, they are readily identifiable as part of historical building stock and due to similarities in age design and materials, make strong contribution to the streetscape. Together, these houses make the most consistent streetscape in Guildford.
