Physical Description

House, 63 Forrest Street has a single storey timber framed house constructed in the Inter War style of Architecture. The walls are weatherboard clad. There is a projecting front room that has a gabled roof and multi paned timber casement window, the front entrance is under the front gable. The roof is gabled and hipped and Zincalume clad. The front verandah is supported by square timber posts over limestone piers. The facade has multi paned timber framed French doors to the verandah and a main entrance door. There are two storey additions at the rear.
There is a front wall built of rubble limestone that has piers to the front boundary.


The house was first listed in Post Office Directories in 1902 with Frederick Lewis as resident. The house was originally No. 156. It became number 63 when the whole street was renumbered in 1939.
The 1914 sewerage map (No. 2118) shows a weatherboard house with a roof in two parts, and a full length front verandah. A wash house was attached at the rear on the east side boundary fence. Another weatherboard outbuilding was in the back yard on the western fence.
The 1949 aerial shows that the house was been rebuilt, as it is further back from the street front than on the sewerage plan, and smaller in its footprint. A physical assessment dates the construction at c1935 due to the Inter-War style of architecture.
From 1924 until at least 1949 when post office directory records cease, the occupant was George Alfred Woollams.
Aerial photos show that between 1999 and 2004 the house was reroofed, a two-storey extension built and another large structure built at the rear, although the lot has not been subdivided.
