6 & 11 Jarrah Street including Brick vs Timber Construction, etc
11 Jarrah Street is a single storey timber and iron house constructed during WWI (c1915) it has elements of both the Federation Arts and Crafts and Federation Bungalow styles of Architecture. The walls are timber framed and clad with timber weatherboards and fibre cement sheeting. The roof is hipped and gabled and clad with corrugated iron. The gable ends have decorative timber features. A set of four casement windows are covered with an almost flat corrugated iron awning supported at each end by a timber strut. The verandah is under a separate corrugated iron roof supported by chamfered timber posts with decorative timber brackets and timber balustrade. A separate flat roof is located over the verandah. The asymmetrical front façade has a French style front door with casement windows to one side. There is another entrance door leading into a front sleep-out featuring fibre cement sheet walls with decorative timber features and coach style windows. There are two rendered chimneys with chimney pots evident. There is a timber picket fence to the front boundary line.
It is thought that House, 2 Jarrah Street was constructed c. 1915 and may have been built by local contractors, Hough and Sons. In 1921, House, 11 Jarrah Street was owned and occupied by Frederick Donaldson, a foreman. At this time, the house was numbered 62 Jarrah Street. By 1941 ownership had changed to Edith Mary Donaldson.
