Green House

Stirling Highway, North Fremantle

This heritage-listed house is a typical timber-framed weatherboard, asbestos and iron, single storey cottage. It's historically significant as it represents the typical workers house at the time it was built in 1934, for returned serviceman Charles Percival Rule, who became a long-term councillor for North Fremantle and Fremantle. Charles died on 8 September 1986, aged 76 and the property remained in the Rule family until 1990.
