ARCHITECTURE

No. 22 Allen Street is a single storey house constructed in tuck pointed brick and rendered brick with a hipped and gable corrugated iron roof. It is a very fine expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The front elevation is symmetrically planned with a central door and hopper light flanked by sidelights and bay windows. The bay windows have sets of three casement windows with hopper lights. The facade features a full width skillion roofed verandah. The verandah is set on turned timber posts with small post brackets. A St Andrew’s cross balustrade is set between the posts. There is a gable over each bay window. There are rendered strings in the brickwork. A fine set of concrete steps lead from the verandah to the garden.
