Review of B Graded Buildings in Kew, Camberwell & Hawthorn
Statement of Significance
26A Wandsworth Avenue is of local historical and architectural significance. Designed in 1889 by the architect George Jobbins as his own residence, the house is a representative and relatively intact example of a large single-storey Italianate designs of the later boom period, featuring distinctive and rich detailing. Though now on a reduced allotment and addressing a different street frontage, it also retains a generous garden setting. The house is relatively intact, other than for alterations of longstanding relating to the enclosure of the courtyard and the creation of a new entry on the north side of the house following subdivision of the original frontage to Mont Albert Road.
