Physical Description

25 Alma Street is a single storey, brick and iron house with an asymmetrical facade designed as a simple example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are face brick with a wide banding of rough finish render. The roof is gabled and clad with corrugated iron. There is a face brick corbelled chimney. There is a protruding front room with two double hung sash windows and a gable end (with a simple timber roof vent with rendered sill set into gable-end). There is a vertical brick lintel detail to double sash windows of the front room. Adjacent is a verandah under a continuous corrugated iron roof supported on turned timber posts with simple decorative verandah brackets. The wall under the verandah has the front door and another window. The house is set back from the front boundary and there is a grassed front garden with bushes partially obscuring the front facade.


This house was formerly 95 Alma Street. Numbering changed in 1934/35. This house was built after 1908 as it is not shown on the sewerage plan of that year. It is first apparent in the Post Office Directories in 1916 and the occupant was Richard Flintoff. The cottages at 23 to 31 Alma Street were all built in the same year. A photograph c. 1980 shows that the house was in good condition. The roof was corrugated iron and the brick façade was rendered to a height level with the tops of the windows. The verandah had been partially enclosed with lattice and asbestos sheeting. The block was surrounded with a timber fence.


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


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