61 York Street, Fitzroy North

This four brick house was built for Michael Connell and was worth 20 pounds (Fitzroy Ratebook 1876).

“This simple gabled double fronted house was constructed in 1876, and is a relatively early dwelling for North Fitzroy. It is a small and elegant cottage with a symmetrical front of agreeable proportions built hard on the street alignment, a type of which few remain, although once common. The eaves line is simple with brackets supporting the gutter. The only decoration is the projecting blocks with faces supported on consoles at the gutter ends. The two chimneys are intact” (North Fitzroy Conservation Study 1978)
