House at 261 North Terrace
The building is a survival of the time- in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries- when North Terrace was a sought-after residential street. It is a small, but elaborate Victorian villa in the French style, consisting of a porch, sawn ashlar stone, rusticated quoins, disappearing jalousies, mansard slate roof, with an attic and a parapet terminated by urns. The roof, with its attic window, is distinctly French, and although elaborate, is well scaled to so small a house. It has a fine iron fence gate and posts. The verandah has been removed and a later addition obscures the porch.
It was built from 1881-1883 for Arthur Waterhouse to a design of William McMinn, architect.
