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, 15 Manning Street, is an altered, rendered masonry and tile single storey house dating from c1901. 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

15 Manning Street is a single storey, rendered masonry and tile house with a symmetrical facade designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are rendered masonry. The roof is hipped and clad with tiles. The facade has a central front door with a timber framed casement window to each side. The verandah has a broken back tiled roof and is supported by moulded plaster columns on rendered masonry piers with a rendered masonry balustrade. There is a rendered masonry wall to the front boundary line.


15 Manning Street is first mentioned in the Post Office Directories with that street number in 1905 and is occupied by Francis Temple. He is resident in Manning Street from 1902. It is assumed that he moved to Manning Street when he took occupancy of the house. Further research will resolve the exact date of construction and establish if he was the owner and occupant of the house.
The 1908 sewerage plan of the site shows that the stone house had a verandah across the front of the building and a timber addition at the rear. A brick closet was located in the back yard on the rear property boundary.
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 in 1979 shows that the front boundary wall and verandah balustrade were of a matching design that is not original. The verandah supports in the form of pillars are also not original. The house was in good condition with a dark corrugated iron roof.


Medium degree of integrity (original intent partially clear, current use compatible, high long term sustainability).
Medium degree of authenticity with some original fabric remaining but with some alterations.
(These statements based on street survey only).


Condition assessed as good (assessed from streetscape survey only).
