Physical Description

House, 106 Forrest Street is a single storey timber and iron house constructed as a simple variation of the Victorian Georgian 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 under a separate corrugated iron bullnose roof supported by squared timber posts. The symmetrical front façade has a central entry door and a timber framed window symmetrically placed on one side of the central door and timber French doors (probably not original) to the other side. Corrugated iron sunhoods are located over timber windows to the west elevation. There is a rear addition with a skillion roof. The place has a painted timber picket front boundary fence and mature tree plantings inside the lot and on the verge.


The first resident was John Brown in 1906, followed by Mrs M Brown until 1915.
Numbers were allocated in c1915. The house was originally No. 183. It became number 106 when the whole street was renumbered in 1939.
The 1911 sewerage map (No. 2133) shows a timber and galvanised iron dwelling with a roof in three sections. The building is towards the front and east of a long narrow block with a small timber outbuilding near the house on the east side of the block.

William Ainsworth was a resident from c1925, and Mrs F Ainsworth was still there until at least 1949 (when post office directory records cease).


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