Buildings, which due to their character create the atmosphere of Peppermint Grove, therefore should be retained, but may be altered and extended in a manner which is both discrete and sympathetic to the original fabric and character so that a significant proportion of the original building is retained and from the street the additions are seen to be a continuation of the same fabric and character.

Statement of Significance

This single storey brick and terra cotta tile residence in the
InterWar Bungalow style is culturally significant because:
it was constructed for the Foulds family, who were
noted manufacturers in the state during the 1920s and
it is representative of the style and standard of the
better class of bungalows in the district;
it is located within a cultural group and a townscape

The place was designed as a Federation period bungalow,
complete with detailing of that period, ego the chimneys.
The roof appears to have been modified by the elimination
of separate or crippled verandahs, which was a relatively
common InterWar adaptation. The place complements other
Federation period houses of the precinct.
The adaptation of the place contributes to a wider
understanding of the place's cultural history

The place remained in the ownership of the Foulds family
until 1955 and has some social significance.

Part of a cultural group
Located within a townscape area

The place is typical of the style and standard of the
Federation and interwar period bungalows in the district.

Physical Description
