Statement of Interest

This single storey cottage has a fine doorpiece and distinctive splayed railed steps and it is a significant addition to the streetscape of this residential area of Perth.

The Southern sections of King Street and James Street were laid out in a grid pattern in 1803, to accommodate expansion of the city. The land had previously been a garden for the King James Hospital, which is situated to the North (see separate listing). Individual plots were then sectioned in 1830 by the City architect, W D Mackenzie and feued for housing. Conditions of the feu meant that most of the houses had to be set back at a certain distance from the street, with their gardens to the front. Many of the houses, including this one, are apparent on the 1837 Map.
