ARCHITECTURE

No 205 Canning Highway is a single storey house constructed in tuck pointed brick and rendered brick with a hipped tiled roof. It is good expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The front elevation was symmetrically planned with a full width hip roofed verandah. There is an addition to the west resulting in an asymmetrical elevation. The verandah is set on stop chamfered timber posts with brackets. There is a central door flanked by casement windows. The roofscape features a rendered chimney. Render bands run across the facade.
