Statement of Significance

House, 9 Manning Street, is a typical brick and tile single storey house dating from c1915-1920. The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area. It is representative of the typical workers' houses in the Fremantle area. The place is an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture.

Physical Description

9 Manning Street is a single storey, brick and iron house with an asymmetrical facade designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are face brick. The roof is hipped and half gabled and clad with corrugated iron. The facade has a projecting front room with a double hung sash window and half gable over. There is a verandah which wraps around the side of the building with the front door at the end. The verandah has a broken back roof and is supported by pairs of timber posts with decorative brackets. There is a timber picket fence to the front boundary line.


The first recording of the place in the Post Office Directories is in 1917 and the occupant was Baptist Reverend William Gilmore. A later occupant was Rene Joseph Thompson who was resident in the house between 1920 and 1924.
A photograph of the place in 1979 shows that the front verandah had been partially enclosed with a structure of louvres and asbestos sheeting.
This place was identified by the Fremantle Society in 1979/80 as being of cultural heritage significance. (Coded: Yellow: “Contributing to the unique character of Fremantle”)
In 1996, a photograph of the house shows that the house was in good condition with no significant change to the 1979 photograph. The brick work, verandah posts and windows all appear to be in good condition. A cyclone mesh fence was evident on the front boundary.
In 1997, an application was received by the city of Fremantle for additions and renovations to be undertaken on the property. These additions involved the demolition of the lean to on the back of the building and the demotion of a shed in the back yard. The additions included a two storey brick additions at the rear of the building and a separate garage and studio in the back yard. This application was supported and the additions were undertaken.
