Statement of Interest

This symmetrical terrace, on a prominent corner site, is a significant addition to the streetscape of this residential area of Perth. The twin gablets and the retained symmetry of the group marks it out as being one of distinction. The doorpieces and small round-arched slit windows add a decorative touch to the terrace.

Local knowledge suggests that these houses were built to accommodate farmers when they brought their animals in to the nearby market.
