60 Fergie Street

60 Fergie Street, North Fitzroy

This is one of a pair of two storey decorative Hawthorn brick terraces with cream brick patterning across the entire façade. The terraces have a render cornice and parapet with a rectangular pediment and festoons to the cornice. The verandahs have case iron friezes (missing to No. 60) and a cast iron lacework balustrade.

The VHRF Committee of Management offered $6,500 towards verandah frieze reinstatement and tessellated tile reinstatement to the verandah floor and path. The works involve the reinstatement of the case iron frieze to the verandah at both levels and reinstatement of tessellated tiling to the verandag floor and entry path. The cast iron frieze will match the adjacent terrace at 58 Fergie Street, which is a pair with this terrace. The owner has provided evidence that the tessellated tiling to the verandah floor and path was an original feature of the terrace. The pattern of tiling for replacement has been designed to match the original tile pattern as closely as possible.
