Statement of Significance

This single storey, brick, timber and tile bungalow, in the Federation Queen Anne style, has cultural significance because: it is associated with the Sholl and Church families, both prominent families in the suburb; it is an exemplar of its style; it is a comparatively rare example of the style applied to an asymmetrically designedbungalow; it has one of the fmest intact verandahs in the suburb and the original place has a high level of integrity; it is part of a cultural group.

Physical Description

This is a striking example of a Federation Queen Anne bungalow,with a superb rhythmic verandah. The place is one of the best textbook examples of its style, applied to a large bungalow. The recent additions, whilst carefully designed to be sympathetic, do intrude on the profile and the character of the original building. The original place has a high level of integrity


The place was built for Horrie Sholl's daughter Jessie and her husband Norman Church, son of local Peppermint Grove businessman John Church. The place was constructed at the western end of the extensive Sholl family property. During the second and third decades of the twentieth century a number of second generation PeppermintGrove children inter married and built their own family homes in the suburb. This place at 62 Leake Street is an example of this stage in Peppermint Grove's history. Considerable historical significance.
