19 Canning Highway (map)


An asymmetrical single storey residence, with a projecting northeast wing to the front facade and a skillion roofed verandah running the remainder of the facade. The brick walls were once tuck pointed but are now rendered. There are three bedrooms and a large living area off a central corridor, leading to a kitchen. It appears the house was substantially altered not long after it was built including the addition of the wing which gives it its asymmetrical form. The additions show some characteristics of a simplified Federation Queen Anne style. The adjoining corner site once featured a block of three shops that were demolished post 1995.
