ARCHITECTURE

Federation / Federation Arts & Crafts w Queen Anne Influences

No. 16 (previously was no. 30) Glyde street is a single storey house constructed in brick and limestone with a hipped corrugated iron roof. It is a very good expression of the Federation Arts and Crafts style. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a full width skillion roofed verandah wrapping around a prominent bay window. The verandah is supported on stop chamfered timber posts. The bay window features single pane double hung sash windows. The front door is offset from the bay window and features hopper and sidelights. The facade is layered with a gabled bay over the bay window with a pressed metal infill. A tall brick gable sits to the rear.
