South Terrace was formerly called Mandurah Road. It followed the line of ancient Aboriginal tracks and was the main entrance to Fremantle from the south. Mandurah Road used to continue south along the coast, but owing to shifting sand dunes, it was necessary to make a deviation to Douro Road and travel further inland.

House, 422 South Terrace was built in 1926/27 for George Clarke, The house, valued at ₤1,790, was built by J Harding. Mr Clarke owned the house until his death in 1963. (George Clarke also owned 424 South Terrace from 1935 to 1963.) A diagram dated 1954 shows a large brick house with a full length front verandah that wrapped around one side. A path down one side of the house had branches to link with the front and back doors, and the separate laundry and garage in the backyard.

In 1963, J O’Shea applied to the Fremantle City Council for permission to establish an ‘eating house’ in the property. O’Shea renewed the licence for the ‘Sea Breeze’ the following year. The property was owned by Shelia Bartholomaeus at this time.

The property has changed several times since the 1970s.
