Physical Description

House, 58 Harvest Road, is a double storey brick and iron cottage with asymmetrical facade designed as a simple example of the Federation Queen Anne style of architecture. Walls are brick on limestone foundations. A hipped roof is interrupted by a gable over the front room. The gable is roughcast rendered with simple timber detailing and a turned finial. Masonry steps with a low balustrade wall lead to the front verandah. A separate verandah roof is supported by turned timber posts. A simple timber frieze has been added to provide a decorative element to the front facade. Paired turned posts subtlety reinforce the entrance to the building. Front elevation is asymmetrical. The front room has a triple timber sash window with transom windows which together are slightly arched. The timber front door has a transom window. A two storey extension has been added to the house prior to 1994. There is a low limestone wall to the Harvest Road elevation and a timber picket fence to Corkhill Street.
This place contains a limestone feature.


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, 58 Harvest Road was constructed c.1913 for William Paul. William occupied the place until 1923, after which Mrs Elizabeth Paul is listed as owning and occupying the place until at least 1935. In the 1940s, the place was occupied by Andrew Landgren. Plans submitted in 1986 by then-owners Derek and Margaret Luke show the original four-room cottage extended to the rear. The original central passage leads from the front door, dividing two bedrooms to the west from a front-room lounge and separate kitchen on the east, opening into a large vestibule flanked by a small bedroom (west side) and bathroom (east side), and then a sleep-out at the rear containing the laundry and shower. The front verandah is shown in these plans as having the western end enclosed. Real estate advertisements for the place in 2002 note it as having an original fireplace and mantelpiece in the front lounge.

This place was included in the 'North Fremantle Heritage Study' (1994) as a place contributing to the development and heritage of North Fremantle. It was also 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.
