Physical Description

House 106 Holland Street is a single storey timber and iron house constructed as a simple variation of the Federation Bungalow style of Architecture. The walls are painted timber weatherboard. The hipped roof is clad with corrugated iron. The front verandah sits under the main roof, although at a different roof pitch. The verandah is supported by timber posts. A simple timber framed awning is located above the windows. The asymmetrical front façade has timber double hung windows. A face brick chimney is evident. The place has no front boundary fence.


Twelve houses Holland Street (Nos. 90-112) were all built by 1902. Lot 1147 was vacant land in 1900. In 1901/02 a cottage had been built and was owned by the government and occupied by Henry Creighton, a shunter. By 1904/05 William Harrington, an engine driver was the occupant of the government owned home. Numbers were allocated in 1905. The house was originally number 181, and became number 104 when the whole street was renumbered in 1937. By 1911/12 John O’Shea was the occupant. In 1918 the house was purchased off the government by Monica O’Shea. John O’Shea was the main occupant until 1930. In the period 1952 to 1956 the owner/occupant was William Pearson Bell. The house has had several owners since that time. Aerial photos show that between 1999 and 2004 the lot was subdivided and a new house built at the rear. The 1914 Sewerage Plan (No 2118) shows a small square weatherboard house with a front verandah and some weatherboard outbuildings. Aerial photos show that between 2000 and 2004 the lot was subdivided and a new house built at the rear.
