About 

In response to a community request, Council engaged heritage consultants, Peter Andrew Barrett and Trethowan to re-investigate the heritage significance of 57 and 60 Berkeley Street, Hawthorn.  

57 Berkeley Street, Hawthorn (Chesney Wolde)

Following their investigations, heritage consultant, Peter Andrew Barrett, recommended that 57 Berkeley Street, Hawthorn be included in the Heritage Overlay as an individually significant heritage place. 

The house at 57 Berkeley Street, Hawthorn is a fine and intact example of a Federation-style villa with Arts and Crafts detailing. It is considered to be a representative example of the substantial villas built south of Riversdale Road during between 1910 -1940.

The property has been recommended for local heritage protection for its architectural (Criterion D) and aesthetic (Criterion E) value to the City of Boroondara.

The house was designed by architect Albion Walkley, who has been recognised as a prominent architect who designed numerous homes around Boroondara and Hawthorn.

The property is recommended for local heritage protection for its historical (Criterion A), architectural (Criterion D) and aesthetic (Criterion E) value to the City of Boroondara.

Next steps

Council officers will review the feedback received and prepare a report for consideration by the Urban Planning Delegated Committee (UPDC).  The UPDC will decide whether to: 

  • Adopt the draft heritage citations. 
  • Commence the formal planning scheme amendment process to apply the Heritage Overlay to the properties.
  • Write to the Minister for Planning to seek interim Heritage Overlays for the properties, to protect the properties while an amendment to apply a permanent Heritage Overlay is progressed. 

The report is likely to be considered by the UPDC mid 2021.  

Affected and adjoining property owners/occupiers and anyone who provided Council with feedback as part of the preliminary consultation process will be notified of the proposed UPDC date and have the opportunity to address the UPDC in support of their feedback.
