Statement of Significance

House, 9 Price Street, is a typical rendered masonry and tile single storey house dating from c1907. The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area.

Physical Description

9 Price Street is a single storey, rendered masonry and tile house with an symmetrical facade designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are rendered masonry. The roof is hipped and clad with terracotta tiles. The facade has a central front door flanked either side by a flat projecting bay with casement windows. The verandah has a separate tiled roof and is supported by round moulded plaster pillars with a curved metal balustrade. There is a curved rendered masonry and iron wall to the front boundary line.


This house was formerly 31 Lord Street. Lord Street was changed to Price Street in 1908/09 in honour of James Price, MLA for Fremantle 1905 to 1920 and the Minister for Works 1906 to 1909. The previous name was used to represent the title held by the persons after whom the adjoining streets were named ie: Grey and Russell.
This house is first recorded in the Post office directories in 1907 and the occupant was Alex Watson the manager of the firm Emanuel Bros. Watson lived at the house until and least 1912. Further research of the City of Fremantle Rates Books will establish if Watson was also the owner of the place. Later occupants were Mrs S. Williams and Harry E. Bolton.
The 1908 sewerage plan of the site shows that this brick house had a symmetrical front façade design with two bay windows and a verandah. At the rear is a verandah a portion of which was enclosed to form the bathroom. A water tank was located adjacent to the back of the house. In the back yard was a galvanised iron washhouse and a timber shed. On the rear boundary of the lot were three galvanised iron stables and a galvanised iron closet.
