No 33 Irwin Street is a single storey house constructed in brick and rendered brick with a hipped and gable tiled roof. It is a fine expression of the Inter-War Porch style. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a thrust gable bay and a small skillion roofed porch. The porch is supported on stout brick piers. A brick balustrade finished with a soldier course top spans between the piers. The gable bay features brick patterns in the render and a horizontal sun hood over casement windows. A matching window arrangement is reflected on the opposite side of the porch. The roofscape features a rendered chimney.

HISTORY

Historic Theme: Demographic Settlement

Woodside is a relatively cohesive precinct where most of the places were constructed following the subdivision of W.D. Moore’s Estate commencing in 1912. Most of the lots were sold between 1912 and 1929 and the majority of buildings were completed in this time. Residences were substantial and of various Federation period styles distinguishing the area from the small worker’s cottages of Plympton. The Inter-War Californian Bungalow style residence is also represented in Woodside.
The Woodside Precinct remains largely intact in terms of original housing with little infill subdivision or replacement housing.
