Heritage Significance and Listings

Heritage Listings and Explanatory Notes

Intact detailed wrought iron lace work, veranda, original windows, however the fence and gate need to be reinstated to an original bluestone and cast iron similar to house 47.

Ornate and mostly intact masonry detail on the parapet front, missing two orbs on its corners.

37 Hawke Street is a two-story brick and bluestone building containing building fabric from the 1872 period of construction and other than the front fence, it is unaltered and mostly intact to its era. Original verandah has restored cast iron panel lacework. Original 4 panel solid wood front door with fanlight overhead. Original chimneys are all intact and operational.

Its two-tone brickwork is particularly impressive and would have been a special feature specified by highly talented architects from the firm of Crouch & Wilson.
