Physical Description

263-265 South Terrace is a single storey, brick and iron duplex pair with a symmetrical facade built in 1901 and designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are rendered masonry with red face brick evident between roof and verandah. The rooves are pitched and clad with corrugated iron with dividing wall visible between. The verandah has a separate tiled roof and is supported by double steel posts and the dividing rendered masonry wall. The front doors with fanlights are adjacent to each other. There is a high rendered masonry and timber picket wall to the front boundary line making further description difficult.


Duplex, 265 South Terrace was built in 1901/02 for E W Davies. F W Hart, a clergyman, was the first tenant. By 1904, William Mooney, a wire weaver, was the occupant.

Arthur Davies was the owner from c. 1904 to c. 1910. By 1920, Lillian Embleton was the owner. She also owned the duplex pair at 259 and 261 South Terrace. Ms Embleton continued to own the property until c. 1940, when it was sold to Eunice and John Anderson. They were still the owners in the early 1950s. The duplex was leased to tenants during this time.

A Metropolitan Sewerage plan dated 1955 shows a pair of attached brick residences at 263 and 265 South Terrace. Both had full length front verandahs and galvanised iron additions at the rear. They were are of the same plan form as the terraced cottages next door at 259 and 261 South Terrace.
