Late Victorian/ Early Federation/ Bungalow with Georgian Influences
No. 1 Salvado Avenue is a single-storey house constructed in tuck-pointed brick and rendered brick with a hipped, corrugated-iron roof. It is a fine expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The place sits on a corner lot and addresses both Salvado Avenue and Staton Road. The front elevation is symmetrically planned with a full-width, skillion-roofed verandah. The verandah is supported on turned timber posts. There is a central door and hopper light, flanked by a sidelight and narrow double-hung sash windows. The walls are tuck-pointed brick with rendered string courses. The windows have sills and dressings and the roofscape features a pair of rendered chimneys.
