ARCHITECTURE

No 182 Canning Highway is a single storey house constructed in limestone and rendered brick with a hipped and gable corrugated iron roof. It is a very fine expression of the Federation Bungalow style. It is asymmetrically composed with a gabled thrust bay and a part width, return bull nose roofed verandah. The verandah is supported on timber posts with brackets. A broad flight of steps leads down to the garden from the verandah. The gabled bay features a two-pointed arched window with fixed casement windows and hopper lights. There is a central door flanked by French double hung sash windows. Walls are random coursed limestone with rendered quoins.
