Physical Description

House, 22 Hickory Street is a two storey (originally single storey) timber and iron house constructed as a simple variation of the Federation Bungalow style of Architecture. The walls are timber framed and clad with painted timber boards. The roof is hipped and gabled and clad with corrugated iron. The verandah is under a separate corrugated iron roof supported by turned and chamfered timber posts. The asymmetrical front façade has a protruding front room with two timber framed double hung sash windows. A tree in the front yard prevents further description of the front elevation. There is a two storey addition to the rear, built in similar materials. There is a timber picket fence to the front boundary line.


Hickory Street was largely developed in the last decade of the nineteenth century during the gold boom and much of the housing stock still dates from that time. The street was formerly known as James Street, the change occurring in 1901/02.
The site was a vacant lot through to the 1920s. In December 1927 Council approved plans for a weatherboard house to be built at the site for Mr H.D. Whitbread (22 Hickory Street). It cost £650 and was constructed by T Gardner of Mt Lawley. Hedley Draper Whitbred, a draper, had purchased the lot in 1927 and continued to live in the house through into the late 1930s.
