The City of Fremantle has identified this place as being of some cultural heritage significance for its contribution to the heritage of Fremantle in terms of its individual or collective aesthetic, historic, social or scientific significance, and /or its contribution to the streetscape, local area and Fremantle. Its contribution to the urban context should be maintained and enhanced.

Statement of Significance

House, 214 South Terrace, a single storey house constructed dating from c1901 with tuck pointed brick walls and a corrugated iron clad roof has cultural heritage significance for the following reasons:

the place has some aesthetic value as a typical example of an Federation Bungalow that contributes to the quality of its setting along South Terrace and the surrounding area;

the place has some historic value as an early twentieth century residence that demonstrates the settlement and development of the Fremantle area, and;

it is representative of the typical workers' houses in the Fremantle area.

Physical Description

South Terrace is one of the main arterial roads leading into Fremantle. 214 South Terrace is located in the portion between Douglas Street and Wray Avenue and on the eastern side of South Terrace. The streetscape comprises predominantly of single storey houses built in the early twentieth century and some more recent development.

House, 214 South Terrace is a single storey, single room width, brick and iron house with asymmetrical façade built 1901 and designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are red face tuck pointed brick. The roof is gabled and clad with corrugated iron. The gable end has simple decorative timber fascia and finial. The verandah has a separate bullnose corrugated iron roof supported by turned timber posts with decorative wooden brackets and frieze. The front façade has a front door with side and fanlights and two double hung timber framed sash windows. There is a rendered corbelled chimney evident. There is a recycled face brick wall to the front boundary line.

The rear of the site has an timber framed skillioned roof additions and a timber pergola. There is also an original WC (noted to on a lean to the west) adjoined to the neighbouring property WC at 212 South Tce and a more recent Colorbond clad shed.

A Heritage Assessment was prepared in Dec 2009 by the City of Fremantle for a DA submission to Council for proposed part demolition of rear additions and additions of a single storey addition at the rear of the house, and a replacement front fence.


House, 214 South Terrace was built in 1901 for Walter Hall, a Government Employee. Hall had built a cottage of similar plan form on the other side of the lot the previous year. He rented both cottages to tenants. The first to live at House, 214 South Terrace was Stuart Deans, a steward.

Mr Hall died in 1933 and probate of this will was granted to the WA Trustee Executor. By 1935/36, the cottage was owned by Ruby Forrest and occupied by Michael McGinley. The property was owned by the Vinci family from 1950 until at least 1975.

In 1949, the floor of the cottage was replaced and in 1950, the owner was ordered by the Health Department to enclose the front verandah.

A Metropolitan Sewerage diagram dated 1954 shows 214 and 216 South Terrace as a pair of long, narrow brick cottages on the one lot, with full length front verandahs. Both had rear verandahs and weatherboard additions.

By 1990, the front verandah had been reinstated.

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.

A Heritage Assessment was prepared in Dec 2009 by the City of Fremantle for a DA submission to Council for proposed part demolition of rear additions and additions of a single storey addition at the rear of the house, and a replacement front fence.
