Statement of Significance

House, 193 South Terrace is a large masonry and tile single storey house dating from c1892 which has been designed to address the corner of South Terrace and Louisa Street.

The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area.

With its high roof, distinctive design and prominent corner location the place has landmark quality in the local area.

It is representative of the grander houses that were built in prominent corner sites on major streets in the Fremantle area.

The place is an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture.

Physical Description

193 South Terrace is a large single storey, brick and tile house designed in the Federation Bungalow style of architecture.

The house has asymmetrically designed facades facing South Terrace and Louisa Street which are symmetrical with each other around the intersection corner. Each façade has a projecting room with a gable roof and adjacent verandah which wraps around the corner of the building. Verandahs also wrap around the rear elevations of the building.

The house is elevated from street level with a set of steps leading to the front entrance.

The red face brick walls of the facades are tuck-pointed but parts have been rendered. The roof is hipped and gabled and clad with tiles and there is a rendered brick chimney.

The gables to the projecting rooms have a projecting roof verge with battened soffit and decorative timber bracket. There is a diamond shaped timber vent in the gable end. Each projecting room has a pair of double hung sash windows with a rendered architrave.

The front verandah has a separate tiled roof supported on timber posts and a simple timber balustrade and concrete floor. The front door with fanlights and sidelights is located under the verandah facing South Terrace. On Louisa Street there is a more modest door with a fanlight only. The doors and double hung sash windows all have rendered architraves.

The rear verandahs have hipped roofs separate from the main roof. Those on the west have been fully enclosed with brick walls probably in the Post-War Era and those on the south have been partially enclosed with timber framed walls clad in weatherboards.

There is a low rendered masonry and iron wall of recent construction to the front boundary.


House, 193 South Terrace was built in 1892 for Captain Laurie. Circa 1894, it was purchased by Walter Lawrence and from 1896 to c. 1910 was occupied by sisters, Sarah and Rachel Edwards.

In 1909/10, the property was purchased by Sydney Hicks, who also purchased the house next door (then 63 Mandurah Road; now 197 South Terrace). A Metropolitan Sewerage plan dated about this time shows a very large brick house with frontages on both South Terrace (then Mandurah Road) and Louisa Street. The house was surrounded by (discontinuous) verandahs. A well was located against the eastern wall of the house.

By 1920/21, it was owned by Ellen Hurley and occupied by John Williams and then Charles Sweetman. In 1940/41, House 193 South Terrace was owned and occupied by Frances Barnes.

A plan dated 1920 shows a large brick house on the corner of south Terrace and Louisa Street in an L-shape.

In 1964, plans were submitted to the City of Fremantle for the addition of a laundry and garage and the reinstatement of an outside wall.

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.
