Physical Description

267 South Terrace is a single storey timber and iron house constructed in 1899 in the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The roof is hipped and gabled and clad with corrugated iron. The gable end features decorative timber elements and finial. The verandah is under a separate corrugated iron roof supported by timber posts with decorative timber brackets. The asymmetrical front façade has a recessed front door with a projecting front room with double hung sash windows. There are two rendered chimneys evident, one with chimney pot. The house is situated at street level. There is a hedge set between rendered masonry pillars to the front boundary line.


House, 267 South Terrace was built in 1899 for Francis Henry Stokes. Mr Stokes continued to own the property until c. 1915, although he did not live in it from c. 1910. Mr Stokes was listed in the rate books as an accountant and then a contractor.

By 1920/21, the cottage had been bought by Royland Sharp under the War Service Home Board scheme. Mr Sharp was still the owner in the mid-1940s.

A Metropolitan Sewerage plan dated 1955 shows a large weatherboard house built close to the northern boundary. The front of the house had projecting rooms on either side of the entry, and a full length front verandah. A path led to the front door, and another led from the street, down the southern side of the house and around to the back verandah. There was a bathroom with attached weatherboard outbuilding on the northern boundary behind the house. A well was also located in the backyard.

This place was included in the list of heritage places in the City of Fremantle identified by the Fremantle Society (1979/80) - RED -significant for contributing to the unique character of Fremantle.
