Buildings, which due to their character create the atmosphere of Peppermint Grove, therefore should be retained, but may be altered and extended in a manner which is both discrete and sympathetic to the original fabric and character so that a significant proportion of the original building is retained and from the street the additions are seen to be a continuation of the same fabric and character.

Statement of Significance

This single storey brick and corrugated zincalume residence, in the
Federation Bungalow style, set in an open garden is culturally
significant because:
- it was constructed for the Alfred Hubbard family, a senior
civil servant in the early twentieth century;
- it is representative of the style and standard of the better
class of bungalows in the district;
- it is an attractive example of an asymmetrical Federation
- it is located within a cultural group and townscape area.

The house is a Federation Bungalow which is asymmetrical in form
and is less ornate than the Federation Queen Anne style of its
neighbour. The house is fmely proportioned and is notable for the
elegance of its verandah with its graceful curved and fretted
bressemers spanning between the turned verandah posts. The place
is set in an open garden setting to the street, between places of
similar style.

The carport repeats the original detail of the house, however, it
confuses the original asymmetrical presentation of the house.

The house was a highly competent design of its style and period.

Albert Hubbard was one of several civil servants livingin this small
area of Peppermint Grove in the early twentieth century. The place
is part of a group reflecting the social and economicdevelopmentof
the suburb. The place has some social significance.

The place is typical of the style and standard of Federation period
bungalows in this part of the district.
