ARCHITECTURE

No 199 Canning Highway is a single storey house constructed in limestone and brick with a hipped and gabled corrugated iron roof. It is a very fine expression of the Federation Queen Anne style. The front elevation is symmetrically planned with a pair of gable thrust bays and a full width return bull nosed roofed verandah. The verandah is supported on timber posts with post brackets and a timber frieze. There is a central door flanked by bay windows. The bay windows have elaborately detailed half-timbered gables over them. The roofscape features a pair of render capped chimneys. All openings have quoins.
