This freestanding boom style double storey terrace is unfortunately not heritage protected and is in an unrenovated state. Its double storey verandah balustrade, iron lacework and roof has been removed with a single column and decking all that remains and there are large visible cracks on the facade. Still the facade is largely in its original condition and the lack of verandah reveals a richly decorated parapet and party walls, a pair of plain French windows on the upper storey as well as detailed ground level facade featuring a cluster of windows with arched mouldings and bracketed ledges as well as a timber framed Victorian door complete with decorated fanlight and sidelights.
This small row of single storey terrace homes are interestingly named after towns in Gippsland (eastern Victoria) founded during the Victorian era. That is at least three of them are still towns – Lilydale has since become absorbed in metropolitan Melbourne.
