Physical Description

House, 161 South Terrace is a single storey brick and iron house designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are rendered. The roof is hipped and clad with corrugated iron. There is a corbelled chimney with chimney pot evident. The façade is symmetrical with a central front door with sidelights flanked on either side by triple timber framed windows, with fixed top panes. The verandah has a continuous iron roof at a different pitch supported by timber posts with decorative timber brackets. There is a rendered pillar and timber picket fence to the front boundary line.


Originally no. 1 Mandurah Road, the rates book lists entries from 1936-8.

A colour photo dated January 1993 shows this house on the corner of South Terrace and South Street with a corrugated iron roof, hipped and with the ridge running parallel to the front wall and with a verandah under the main roof. Cream brick walls enclose the sides of the front verandah. The front wall is rendered masonry, with a central front door with side lights and a window either side of the door. The windows appear to be aluminium framed, and it appears that there is a canopy over a window on the right hand side wall (adjacent to South Street). The verandah roof is supported by 2 pairs double steel pipes at the centre and single steel pipes at each end. The electricity meter is in a box with a glass door on the right hand side of the front door. Towards the rear of the house is a brick chimney with a single pot.


High degree of integrity (original intent clear, current use compatible, high long term sustainability).
High degree of authenticity with much original fabric remaining.
