A 90-YEAR-OLD building is set to be added to the City of Subiaco’s heritage list.
Number 201, Railway Road was constructed as a home in 1927; a shop was added seven years later.
Built in the Inter-War Californian bungalow style, the place was assessed during a heritage survey and found to be of ‘considerable significance’ to the City with a high level of integrity and authenticity.
The building was “considered rare as an example of a corner store still in commercial operation”.
The premises is now owned Barbara Wolff and James Evans, who running a traditional Chinese medical centre there.
Ms Wolff said they purchased the site two years ago, attracted by its location and ample space.
Subiaco councillors voted 12-0 at the City’s recent council meeting to have the site, which is on the corner of Hamersley Road, added to the heritage list.
