It is recommended that this place be considered for entry in the Heritage Council of Western Australia's Register of Heritage Places.

Statement of Significance

Highly significant, rare surviving terrace of Victorian Italianate style housing which has a significant impact on the streetscape of High Street. The place contributes to a substantially intact late nineteenth and early twentieth century streetscape close to the centre of Fremantle.

Physical Description

Two storey brick (decorative brickwork façade) and stone (sides) attached terrace of four, separated by firewalls which have decorative brickwork and a parapet roof.


High Street was named by Surveyor General Roe - as was customary in English towns, the main street of the town was named High Street. Eastward from William Street the roadway was completed by convict labour after the Town Hall was built in 1887. High Street around the Town Hall closed to traffic in 1966. The High Street Mall was trialled in November 1973 and made a permanent pedestrian mall in 1975.

A building was erected between 1895 and 1900, possibly in 1898. It was erected for Frank Pearse and the first occupant was Annie Willis, a boarding house keeper.
