Physical Description

180 South Terrace is a single storey, brick and iron house with an asymmetrical façade built in 1900 and designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are red face brick. The roof is hipped and clad with corrugated iron. The façade is asymmetrical with a front door with fanlight and two double hung sash windows on the protruding front room. The verandah which wraps around the front facade has a separate corrugated iron roof supported on timber posts with a simple timber balustrade. The house is elevated from street level with a set of steps leading to the front entrance. There is a rendered masonry and iron fence to the front boundary line.


House, 180 South Terrace was built in 1900 for Isaac Bolton, a coach builder. In that year, the rate book listed four males and four females living in the cottage. Mr Bolton continued to own the property until c. 1920, when ownership passed to Lily Bolton. Between c. 1908 and c. 1920, stables were listed on the lot as well as the cottage.

The business of Bolton and Sons was established in 1888 and from 1895, the firm were listed in Henry Street, Fremantle. By 1907, they were also operating from William Street, but by 1910, only the William Street outlet remained.

The Boltons occupied House, 180 South Terrace until 1935, when a Mr Porter took over.

A Metropolitan sewerage plan dated 1954 shows a large brick house with a projecting front room with a bay window. A verandah ran across the full length of the front of the house and wrapped around to continue down the full length of the side. At the rear, there were weatherboard and galvanised iron attached buildings. A path led from the back of the house to a large separate galvanised building in the yard. A circular fish pond in the backyard is also marked on the plan.
