Physical Description

House, 61 Forrest Street is a 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 timber weatherboards. The roof is hipped and corrugated iron clad. The front verandah is separate to the main roof, at a different pitch. The verandah is supported by turned timber posts with decorative timber brackets. The symmetrical front façade has a central entry door and two symmetrically placed timber double hung windows. The place has a limestone and painted timber picket front boundary fence and timber gate.


The house was first listed in Post Office Directories in 1902 with Edward Rogers as resident. Numbers were allocated in 1905, at which time the house was No. 154. It became number 61 when the whole street was renumbered in 1939.
The 1914 sewerage map (No. 2118) shows this to be a timber dwelling with a full-length front and back verandah and a timber room on the west side at the rear. There was a chimney outside the line of the wall on the west side of the house.
Cuthbert C. P. Potts was a long-term resident from c1905-c1920, followed by Arthur William Cockcroft still lived there from c1922 until at least 1949 (when directory records cease).
Aerial photos show that between 2004 and 2010 the rear of the lot was subdivided and another house built.
