Construction years: 1900-
Physical description: 3 Rae Street, 'Seaview':
Wide fronted two-storey terrace. Late example of the Victorian style. Strong Queen Anne influence. Only major alteration is balcony end. Otherwise integrity good and appears capable of full reconstruction. Downstairs features attractive mouldings and iron lace frieze and fringes. Original slate, mansard roof with large dormer (Queen Anne style) and balustraded parapet. These together with chimney, also feature some attractive mouldings. Bracketed cornices and ball urns. Original palisade fence. Of special note is small tiled feature between downstairs windows, appears original. Built about 1906.

5 Rae Street, 'Bayview':
Outstanding single storey post-Victorian house . Fully restored. Good except for security grilles and door. Symmetrical design. Hipped slate roof with hipped, bullnosed, corrugated iron verandah on cast iron posts. Special feature is small projecting centre section with gablet. Cast iron lace frieze to verandah. Some attractive mouldings. Central steps and good palisade fence. Built about 1911.

7 Rae Street, 'La Paloma':
Good late example of transitional Victorian/Edwardian style. Hipped slate roof with terra-cotta ridge capping. Unusual feature is gable which forms half of verandah roof. Supported on solid tapered posts with simple timber brackets. Gable decorated in timber and roughcast. (This is Edwardian influence). Also features decorative mouldings (typical of earlier period). Wrought iron balustrade appears to be only major alteration and should be removed. Excellent tiles on front of steps. Fence good but probably later. Built about 1911.

9-11 Rae Street:
Very good Edwardian style semi, about 1910. Symmetrical design with pyramidal slate roof. Two low pitched gablets over rectangular bays below verandahs. Decorated in pressed metal. Turned timber verandah posts with carved brackets, spindle valence, and top rung of balustrade. Triple casement windows. Good tiles on front steps. Good brick and roughcast chimneys. Only major alterations are to fences, still reasonably sympathetic. No. 11 also has security door.
