Physical Description

Single storey limestone house with brick quoining to doors and windows and a Zincalume gable roof with decorative timber finial. There is a bull nosed verandah which returns down the sides and is supported by timber posts between timber balustrading. There is a rendered retaining wall to the front boundary. Nos. 14 and 16 are very similar in form and materials.


The house is first listed in post office directories in 1903 with John Weir as the occupant. From 1904 to c1929 Charles Leunig, Builder and Contractor was the main occupant. The house was allocated No. 29 in 1905, and became number 16 when the whole street was renumbered in 1937. A 1913 plan (PWD 13017) and the 1914 Sewerage Plan (No 2033) show that No. 16 is a large stone house with a verandah that runs along the front and wraps around the east side and with its entrance via steps to the verandah at the east side. There was also a verandah at the rear. There is a galvanised iron outbuilding on the west side at the back, and then a retaining wall. Steps lead through the centre to another part of the yard where there is a wc and a timber outbuilding in the back north west corner of the lot. A long-term resident was Oscar F. E. Stack who lived there from 1927 to at least 1949 (when post office directory records cease). Aerial photos show that the house has been extended at the rear since the 1970s, and re-roofed in the early 1980s, except for the verandah roof.
