35 Lothian Street, North Melbourne
This is a double fronted bi-chrome Victorian brick residence located close to the street frontage. The building features arched windows with cream brick quoins to the openings and corners, a cast iron palisade fence and a cast iron verandah. There was evidence of former tuckpointing to the front, which was in a visibly deteriorated condition. There was also visibly deteriorated mortar and some unsightly cement rich repairs that required removal and repointing.
In February 2015, the VHRF Committee of Management agreed to offer a grant of $6,500 towards the cost of re-tuckpointing the front façade of the property. The work was undertaken during June and July 2016. The works involved re-mortaring and tuck pointing the front elevation.
Given the building is close to the street tuck pointing of the façade has greatly improved the streetscape appearance of the property.
