Physical Description

84 Holland Street is a single storey masonry and tile house constructed as a simple variation of the Federation Bungalow style of Architecture. The walls are painted roughcast rendered brick and red face brick (stretcher bond). The roof is hipped and tile clad. The front verandah sits under a separate extension of the main tiled roof, although at a different pitch. The verandah is supported by timber posts with a scalloped timber valance. The central gable is timber battened with roughcast infill. The symmetrical front façade has a central entry door and double hung timber windows symmetrically placed on either side of the central door. A single face brick and render chimney is evident. The place has a low face brick front boundary fence.


This section of Holland Street was developed by the Workers’ Home Board in the 1930s.
The lot number is 1552. The first tenant of this Workers Homes Board House, which was built in 1913/14, was James Kelly in 1913/14. A long-term resident was George F. Brown (c1925-1945).

The house was originally number 155, and became number 84 when the whole street was renumbered in 1937.
The 1915 Sewerage Plan (No 2068) (damaged and a partial view) shows that the wash house was attached under the main roof on the western end at the rear, and there was a half-length verandah on the east side.


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