Physical Description

78 Holland Street is a single storey masonry and iron house constructed as a simple variation of the Federation Bungalow style of Architecture. The walls are painted rendered brick. The roof is hipped, corrugated iron clad and has a roof ventilator. The front verandah sits under the main roof line. The asymmetrical front façade has timber double hung windows. The place has painted timber picket front boundary fence.


This section of Holland Street was developed by the Workers’ Home Board in the 1930s.
Subdivision 1555 of Lot 1350 was owned by the government and a Workers Homes Board house was built in the rate period 1913/14. Perceval John Brehant was the first occupant and was still living in the house until at least 1949 (when post office directory records cease). Brehant became the owner of the home c. 1941/42.

The house was originally number 149, and became number 78 when the whole street was renumbered in 1937.
The 1915 Sewerage Plan (No 2068) (damaged and a partial view) shows a brick house with a half-length verandah at the rear, a bath under the main roof on the west end of the verandah, and a detached weatherboard wash house on the west side.
Aerial photos show that the rear of the lot was subdivided and another house built c2006.
