Date significance updated: 22 Jun 06
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.


Construction years: 1912-
Physical description: A well maintained single storey federation house orientated towards the River, this retains most of its original detailing - including a simple timber boatshed raised over the intertidal zone with slips to the water.
Further information: Thematic Context: A Place of Residence Suburban to Sydney - Federation Suburbs.


Historical notes: This area was subdivided in 1912, but was only lightly settled at that time and much of the surrounding housing is of a later date. Of the Federation houses this is the only one on the foreshore which has retained its original character. The close relationship between this house and its river setting is relatively unusual on the upper reaches of the River - much of the later housing relating to the street behind.
