Review of B Graded Buildings in Kew, Camberwell & Hawthorn
Statement of Significance
5 Bowen Street, Kew is of local historical and architectural significance as a fine, representative and relatively intact example of single-storey Federation house design, with flanking wings, homestead-form main roof, corner tower and diagonal address of property and street. It is richly and robustly detailed, yet maintains an elegance of line and an emphatic horizontality. The house makes a vital contribution to Bowen Street's group of late Federation houses.
