Physical Description

House, 80 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 with a limestone base. The roof is hipped, corrugated iron clad and has a roof ventilator. The front verandah sits under the main roof line and is supported by twin steel posts with decorative infill (posts not original). The asymmetrical front façade has timber casement windows. The place has a painted timber picket fence to the front boundary.


This section of Holland Street was developed by the Workers’ Home Board in the 1930s. Lot 1554 was originally a Workers Homes Board house built in 1913/14, and the first occupant was James Bennett. A long-term resident was Hugh McGlashan (c1920-1945). The Workers Homes Board owned the house until the mid-1940s when the next owner became Anna Catherine Keseling in 1950/51 and the occupier was Thomas Ronald (Ron) Armstrong. The house was originally number 151, and became number 80 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 detached weatherboard wash house on the west side. Aerial photos show that in the early 2000s the house was reroofed in iron, and the lot was subdivided and another house built at the rear.
