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. Its contribution to the urban context should be maintained and enhanced.

Statement of Significance

House, 22 Howard Street, is a rendered masonry and iron single storey house. The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area. It is representative of typical workers' houses in the Fremantle area. The place is an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture.

Physical Description

22 Howard Street is a single storey rendered masonry and iron house with a symmetrical facade designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are rendered masonry. The facade has a central front door and timber framed casement windows under the verandah. The roof is hipped and clad with corrugated iron. The verandah has a separate corrugated iron roof and is supported by rendered masonry piers. There is a low brick wall to the front boundary.


House, 22 Howard Street was formerly 14 Howard Street; the numbering changing in 1935/36.
This house is first accurately recorded in the Post Office Directories in 1899 and the occupant was Thomas Hopkins. The house may have been constructed prior to this date but the records are not clear in these years. The occupant in 1900 was Miss Caroline Platt.
Further research of the rates books for this period may establish the exact date of construction and the original owner at the time of construction.
The 1908 sewerage plan of this site shows this brick house as freestanding with a verandah at the front and rear. Part of the rear verandah had been enclosed by a timber structure. The back yard was unoccupied except for a shed and brick closet. A stone wall marked the front boundary of the property.
A photograph of the place in 1978 shows that the house was in relatively good condition with rendered external walls and a corrugated iron roof. The verandah pillars are later replacements and the end wall of the verandah had been infilled with a structure of masonry and glass bricks. A low brick wall on the front boundary is also a later addition.
This place was identified by the Fremantle Society in 1979/80 as being of cultural heritage significance. (Coded: Red: "Significantly contributing to the unique character of Fremantle")
