Statement of significance:

The cottage at 11 Prince Street, Granville is of significance for the local area for historical and aesthetic reasons and as a representative example of a modest Federation-period timber cottage in the area. The house, built c. 1911-1912, is readily identifiable as part of the historic building stock of the area and continue to contribute to its character, additonally as part of the group at Nos. 5, 7, 9 and 11 Prince Stret. This group corresponds to Nos. 1-9 Albert Street, which further enhances its significance. The two groups are contributory to townscape and diversity of housing stock and style in the local area.
