The City of Fremantle has identified this place as being of some cultural heritage significance for its contribution to the heritage of Fremantle in terms of its individual or collective aesthetic, historic, social or scientific significance, and /or its contribution to the streetscape, local area and Fremantle.

Statement of Significance

House, 3 Grey Street, is a typical brick and iron single storey house dating from 1914 to 1915. The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area. It is representative of the typical workers' houses in the Fremantle area. The place is an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture.

Physical Description

3 Grey Street is a single storey, brick and iron house with a symmetrical facade designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are pointed brick with rendered banding. The roof is hipped and clad with corrugated iron. There is a small ventilated gable to the apex of the roof and a gable with decorative timber elements over the front door. The facade has a central front door with fanlight flanked either side with timber framed double hung sash windows. The verandah has a continuous corrugated iron roof and is supported by turned timber posts. There is a rendered brick and timber picket fence to the front boundary line.


House, 3 Grey Street was formerly 41 Grey Street; the numbering changed in 1934/35.
This house was built for the owner and occupier Alexander McD Mackay in 1914/15. In 1919/20, the property was transferred to Mary Stack who also occupied the home. By 1934/35, the property was owned by Mary Jane Yench and occupied by Frederick Yench. In later years the property was owned by Frederick Johnson and occupied by Miss Myrtle Johnson, a music teacher. Another recorded resident was Victor Williams between 1945-1949.
A photograph of the house in 1978 shows that the house was of brick and tile with a low brick wall on the front property boundary. Information from an article in 1996 indicates that the house had been renovated internally with a new kitchen and bathroom.
This place was identified by the Fremantle Society in 1979/80 as being of cultural heritage significance. (Coded: Brown: "Positively contributing to the built environment")
