Physical Description

354-356 South Terrace is a single storey, rendered masonry and iron duplex pair with a symmetrical façade built in 1901 and designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are rendered masonry. The roofs are hipped and clad with corrugated iron, with dividing parapet wall visible between the two. The front verandah is under a separate corrugated iron roof supported by turned timber posts with timber frieze to no.356 while to no. 354 the verandah is supported by round concrete columns. The front doors with fanlights are adjacent to each other with pairs of double hung sash windows adjacent. There are at least three brick and rendered corbelled chimneys evident, two with chimney pots. There is a high level rendered masonry wall to the front boundary of no. 356 and a timber picket fence to the front boundary line of no. 354, together with proliferate foliage making further description difficult.


Duplex, 354 South Terrace was built along with its partner at 356 South Terrace in 1901. James Rogers owned the property at this time, although it was soon bought by E W Davies. In 1905/06, ownership passed to Arthur Davies and Frederick Jones. They owned the property until c. 1920, when Arthur died. In 1935/36 the two cottages were owned by Richard Mahon; in 1945/46, they were owned by Hannah Willis. Both cottages were rented to a succession of tenants during this time.

Mrs Willis died in 1946 and by 1948, Richard Calder, a postal employee, had bought the property. In 1960, the property was split, with Richard Calder owning one of the cottages and June Fabain the other. There have been a number of changes in ownership since that time.

A Metropolitan Sewerage plan dated 1954 shows 354 and 356 South Terrace as an attached pair of brick cottages. Both had full length front verandahs and partially enclosed rear verandahs. Each had paths leading from the back door to toilets and galvanised iron outbuildings in the back yards.

This place was 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.
