519 Dryburgh Street, North Melbourne
The building at 519 Dryburgh Street, North Melbourne is a large two story elaborately decorated polychrome brick detached house with a two level cast iron double return verandah and hipped and slated roofs. The verandah is splayed at the corner, with twin duplex posts. The friezes are panelled with finished brackets and fringing.
In August 2015, the VHRF Committee of Management agreed to offer a grant of $20,000 towards the cost of restoration and reinstatement of the Curzon Street verandah. This section of the verandah is the most visible and was in danger of further loss of original fabric through collapse.
The works have prevented further loss of significant fabric and have greatly improved the appearance of the building in the Curzon Street streetscape.
