Statement of Significance as recorded under the Queenscliff Heritage Study 2009
Burrawang is of historical and architectural significance to the Borough of Queenscliffe. It is of historical significance for its association with the continuing development of Point Lonsdale as a genteel seaside resort in the first decades of the twentieth century, with its generous proportions emphasising the desirability of the area as a summer destination for the well-heeled. Architecturally, Burrawang is a substantial and largely externally intact 1920s single-storey, weatherboard Bungalow. While it has a number of broadly comparable local examples, and is a fairly late dwelling in the Bungalow mode, it is still noted for its apparent high degree of external intactness, asymmetrically placed gabled bay, verandah supported by paired columns on rendered pedestals, and box-frame sash windows.
Burrawang, 141 Point Lonsdale Road - Physical Description 1
Extract from the 2009 study
Burrawang is a comparatively generous, single-storey weatherboard house in the Bungalow manner from the 1920s, and of a type common throughout Victoria. It has a main hipped roof form clad in concrete Marseilles-pattern tiles, with brick chimney, and an asymmetrically placed gabled bay projecting forward, with 'shingled' weatherboard and half-timbering in cement sheet with vertical battens to the gable end. The deep verandah is at right angles to this, supported by paired verandah columns on a rendered pedestal. Box-frame sash windows are visible beneath the verandah. The building appears to be largely externally intact, and is sited in a well-vegetated setback to the street.
