Single storey brick and tile residence in the Federation Bungalow style

No 11 Dalgety Street is a single storey house constructed in brick and rendered brick with a hipped and gabled tiled roof. It is a fine expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a thrust bay and a full width return hip roofed verandah. In its original form, the elevation was symmetrical, but additions to the south changed this. The central thrust bay features a gable over a bay window. The bay window has casement windows. The plan steps back to the main wall plane. The now concrete verandah follows the plan of the house and is supported on timber posts. The entry door to the place is on the north façade and relates to a time when the street address was Canning Highway. The original elevations have French windows, a front door with sidelights and sweeping steps up to the front verandah.
