Designated in 1973, the area is a leafy speculatively-developed Victorian suburb.
Its special character comes from the variety of architectural styles and detail, the leafiness of gardens and trees as well as the distinctive street layout.
Building began in the 1830s, with the majority of houses being built in the second half of the 19th century, and southern parts being completed in the 1900s. Distinctive detailing includes stucco capitals and window surrounds, tile paths, terracotta details and spacious front gardens.
