Physical Description

House, 33 Forrest Street is a single storey masonry and iron house constructed in the Federation Bungalow style of Architecture. The walls are limestone to the sill level and rendered stucco brick above. The roof has a small gable to the end of the hipped and is Zincalume clad. There is a front projecting room that has an awning over the pair of timber framed sash windows. The front verandah is under an extension of the main roof and has timber weatherboard cladding under. The verandah is supported by timber chamfered posts with decorative timber brackets supported over limestone balustrading.
There is a timber picket fence to the front boundary and timber gate.


House, 33 Forrest Street is one of a row of ten houses (25-43 Forrest Street) built on the south side of Forrest Street between Wood and Montreal Streets between 1913 and 1915 by the Workers’ Home Board. Three houses at the west end of the street were demolished c1983 to make way for Stirling Highway, and one (No. 39) was demolished and rebuilt in c1975. Although some lots have been subdivided at the rear, and most houses have been extended and redeveloped, the remaining six appear from the street, to be as built in 1914.
The house was first listed in Post Office Directories in 1915, with Reginald V. Hockless as the resident. It was originally number 126, and became number 33 when the whole street was renumbered in 1939.
The 1915 sewerage map (No. 2068) shows the row of houses, with slight variations, but all made of weatherboard with half-length front verandahs, and some (37 and 29) with wrap around verandahs. All had a bathroom under the main roof; some also had the wash house (laundry) under the main roof. Others had a separate outbuilding for the laundry.
Roy Brown was a long-term resident, living in the house from c1925 until at least 1949 (when directory records cease).
Aerial photos (Landgate) show that in 2007 the rear of the lot was cleared for subdivision and a new house built (No 33A).
