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, 67 Attfield Street, is a limestone, brick and iron single storey house dating from 1903. The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area. It is representative of a typical workers cottage in the Fremantle area. The place is an example of the Federation Queen Anne style of architecture.

Physical Description

67 Attfield Street is a single storey, single room width, limestone, brick and iron cottage with an asymmetrical facade designed as a simple example of the Federation Queen Anne style of architecture. The walls are limestone with brick quoins. The roof is gabled and clad with corrugated iron. The verandah has a corrugated iron bullnose roof and is supported by square timber posts on brick piers. There is a rendered chimney with rendered corbels. There is a random rubble limestone wall under construction to the front boundary line.


House, 67 Attfield Street was formerly 93 Attfield Street. Numbers changed in 1935/36.
House, 67 Attfield Street is first listed in the Post Office Directories in 1903 and the occupant was William Brant. In the following two years the occupants were Hugh Carey and William Brown.
During the 1930s, the place was owned by Godrey John Dixon who leased the house to tenants, one of whom was Bert Hicks. In the 1940s and early 1950s the place was owned by William John Hill and a long term occupant was Keith Aubrey Edwards. In the late 1950s the place was owned by George and Alice Smith and occupied by Frederick George Foster.
The 1908 sewerage plan of this site shows this stone cottage is the same design as the adjacent property at 69 Attfield Street which suggest they were built at the same time. The cottages have verandahs across the width of the front facades. At the rear of the buildings are verandahs, which align along the length of the buildings. In the backyards of the two cottages are timber closets. The back yard of 67 Attfield Street has an additional timber shed.
This place was identified by the Fremantle Society in 1979/80 as being of cultural heritage significance. (Coded: Brown: "Positively contributing to the built environment") A photograph of the place at that time shows that the front of the house was rendered and the front door and window had been replaced. The front verandah had been replaced with a flat concrete roof and the verandah supports and balustrades had been replaced with metal ones of a later design. A corresponding front fence of metal is evident although the original masonry part of the front wall may be original limestone.


Medium to high degree of integrity (original intent clear, current use compatible, high long term sustainability).
Medium degree of authenticity with much original fabric remaining but with some alterations.
