Statement of Significance

House, 1 Harvest Road, is a modified, rendered brick and tile single storey house dating from the 1920s. The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area. It is representative of the typical building stock located within the residential areas of North Fremantle. Historically significant as a representation of typical workers' houses in the North Fremantle area. The place is an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture.

Physical Description

House, 1 Harvest Road, is a single storey brick and iron house with asymmetrical facade designed as a simple example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The front wall is rendered brick and the side walls are painted face brick. Roof is corrugated iron with hips and dutch gables. The verandah is under a separate roof. Verandah is supported by rendered balustrade and enclosed with glass (as at 2013 photo). Front elevation is asymmetrical. There is a low level scalloped timber picket fence to the front boundary line. The place has been altered for use as a restaurant.


From the nineteenth century, Harvest Road was important as an access route to Point Direction, the location of a sheltered landing place. Boat building yards were located at Point Direction for much of the twentieth century, during which time the Harvest Road jetty also became a popular family swimming and picnic area. Originally, Harvest Road began at Stirling Highway (then called Bruce Street), but from 1899 it was extended through to Queen Victoria Street (then called Victoria Street). Harvest Road has always been a predominantly residential street, developing steadily from the turn of the twentieth century, and characterised at least in its early decades as a place with a large number of rental properties. Three industries on the street were Purina (1935-55) and Nabisco (1955-88) cereal manufacturers (number 3-5), Rowlands Co Cordial, Wine and Spirits manufacturers (1908 to at least 1939, at number 11), and various marine industries, most prominently Browns Boat Building Yard (from c.1900), which was located between Corkhill (Elizabeth) Street and the River.

House, 1 Harvest Road was constructed between 1925 and 1939. A 1939 Sewerage Plan shows the place as a brick residence on the corner of Burns Street and Harvest Road. In the 1940s, 1 Harvest Road was occupied by Gordon Dedman. In 1997 the place was restored by owners Murray and Juanita Gill for use as an art gallery and tearooms, and continued to operate as such until 2004. A 1997 article describing renovations claims the house was once home to a North Fremantle mayor, but no further evidence to substantiate this claim has been located.
From c. 2004 to 2013 the place was Harvest Restaurant, operated by owner Clint Nolan.
Ad at 2016 it is Habitue Restaurant.
This place was included in the 'North Fremantle Heritage Study' prepared by Craig Burton, for the City of Fremantle, June 1994 as a place contributing to the development and heritage of North Fremantle.
