Rosebery Federation Bungalows re-visited

Rosebery Federation Bungalows re-visited

  • These houses are mostly not on Gardener’s road, although the first two houses, including the one with timber fence, verandah frieze and carport are on that road.
  • All of these have their own grace. See for yourself.

This original model still has the slate roof and some ridge decoration! Highest points show hailstorm damage.

This is tuckpointed! Probably missing some gable decoration? Chimney is different… could this be Arts & Craft minimal style?

This however, is rendered. Has some remaining character…

Finally, a superb Californian Bungalow:
