Built in c1890-1900 and probably by Thomas Foster, builder and his brother Edwin Foster, an architect and surveyor who lived in Bella Vista in Monmouth Road just across from Fosterville Crescent. Some of the houses in Fosterville Crescent are late C19 in appearance but the redevelopment of the street continued until at least 1910. These houses have been very little altered since building.


This house has retained the chimney on the right return.
Rear elevation not inspected.


Interior not seen at resurvey.
