124 Michael Street, Fitzroy North

“This house, constructed in 1884 by Thomas Chevalier (builder) for himself, is of interest for its narrow site and somewhat distorted composition. There is a projecting bay at the ground floor level which supports an upper balcony with a simple cast iron balustrade, timber posts and sawtooth bressumer mouldings. The parapet above surmounts a cornice supported on single brackets which alternate with paterae. The pedimental motif with nail head archivolt moulding is flanked by scrolls and urns. On the ground floor there are hood moulds to the windows (broken by a face in the central window) which are connected across the facade at impost level and linked to the label mould of the entrance door. The double iron palisade fence is intact.” (North Fitzroy Conservation Study 1978) (Glossary)
