Statement of Significance

House, 190 South Terrace, is a typical rendered masonry and iron single storey house dating from c1900. The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area.

Physical Description

190 South Terrace is a single storey, rendered masonry and iron house with an asymmetrical facade built in 1900 and designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are rendered masonry. The roof is hipped and gabled and clad with corrugated iron. Under the gable end is a slightly protruding front room with double casement windows. The verandah wraps around the front façade and has a separate flat concrete roof supported by double steel posts with brick balustrade. The front door with side and fanlights is recessed under the verandah and has a double casement window to one side. The house is elevated from street level with a set of steps leading to the front entrance. There is a rendered masonry wall to the front boundary line. This place contains a limestone feature.


House, 190 South Terrace was built in 1900 for John Bateman, who owned a number of properties in the area. The first occupant was Stanley Evans. John Bateman and Frederick Hollis entered a partnership c. 1910 and by 1920, Frederick Hollis was the sole owner. The house was rented to a succession of tenants during this time.

A Metropolitan Sewerage plan dated c. 1910 shows that the houses at 186, 188, 190, 192, 194 and 196 South Terrace was of similar plan form. All were stone houses of rectangular shape with a projecting front room (rectangular) to the south, with full length front verandahs and centrally located front paths. It would appear that all were built with a bathroom attached to the rear. House, 190 South Terrace had a variety of weatherboard attachments to the rear, and a path led from the back of the house to separate galvanised iron outbuildings. There was also a relatively large weatherboard outbuilding towards the rear of the yard.

Circa 1920, House, 190 South Terrace was purchased by Bessie Trenbath and occupied by the Maddern family. Victor Silich became the owner and occupier c. 1950 and by 1952, the property was owned and occupied by Emma Ciccotosto. L Antenucci owned House, 190 South Terrace for a time in the 1960s. It was then bought by the Spadaro family, who still owned it in the early 1990s.

A large garage and sheds were built to the rear of the house in the 1960s.

This place was included in the list of heritage places in the City of Fremantle identified by the Fremantle Society (1979/80) - BROWN -significant for making a positive contribution to the built environment of Fremantle.
