Statement of Significance

House, 17 Manning Street, is a typical limestone, brick and iron single storey house dating from 1900. The place has aesthetic value for its contribution to the streetscape and the surrounding area. It is representative of the typical workers' houses in the Fremantle area. The place is an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture.

Physical Description

17 Manning Street is a single storey, limestone, brick and iron house with an asymmetrical facade designed as an example of the Federation Bungalow style of architecture. The walls are limestone with brick quoins. The roof is hipped and gabled and clad with corrugated iron. The facade has a projecting front room with a double hung sash window and gable over. The front door and double hung sash window are located under a corrugated iron bullnose verandah supported by chamfered timber posts. There are two brick and rendered corbelled chimneys evident. There is a limestone wall to the front boundary line. There are three story additions designed by Ralph Hoare Architect at the rear of the place.


House, 17 Manning Street was built for the owner Arthur Sanderson in 1900 and occupied by widow, Mrs Robert Jameson.
The 1908 sewerage plan of the site shows this stone house as having a verandah at the front and a timber addition across the rear of the building. In the back yard of the property is a timber shed and a brick closet.
Later owners included; E. W. Davies; Arthur Elvin Davies and Frederick Jones; F. A. Grosvernor and Philip Cranworth Webster. All these owners leased out the property to a variety of tenants. In 1922/24, the property was transferred to Frank Martin Dungey. He and his family owned and occupied the place until at least the 1950s.
A photograph of the house in 1979 shows that the house was in relatively good condition with a tiled roof and a rendered front façade. The verandah supports were pillars and are not original. The low brick wall on the front boundary is not original.
This place was identified by the Fremantle Society in 1979/80 as being of cultural heritage significance. (Coded: Brown: "Positively contributing to the built environment")
In 2006 this place was a Heritage Festival Award winner Category 1 - Conservation of a residential, commercial, industrial and/or mixed use heritage place, by Ralph Hoare Architect.
