Statement of Significance

This single storey brick, tile and timber bungalow, in the Federation Queen Anne style, has cultural significance because: it has historical significance through its associations with Jesse James, Reginald and Lillie Goodman and Geoff Ogden; it is a comparatively rare example of a fine example of its style and bungalow form, which retains such a high level of integrity; it is part of a cultural group and a townscape area.

Physical Description

The place is a handsome example of a Federation Queen Anne style bungalow, which has been sympathetically refurbished. This bungalow has a high level of integrity that demonstrates a high level of technical skill in the manner that the detail elements complement the overall form and style of the place.


The place was built on land originally belonging to Jesse James, who ran a market garden on the site from the earliest years of the suburb's establishment. Reginald and Lillie Goodman constructed the residence and occupied 41 Irvine Street for half a century. Refurbished by well known entrepreneur, Geoff Ogden. Some historical significance.


Thoughtfully restored and extended by G Ogden. Apparent loss of decorative detail to verandah.
