ARCHITECTURE

No 22 Bedford Street is a single storey house constructed in rendered brick with a hipped and gable corrugated iron roof. It is a fine expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The front elevation is symmetrically planned with a full width, return bull nosed roofed verandah. The verandah is set on turned timber posts over a concrete floor. There is a central door and hopper light flanked by sidelights and thrust gable bays. The thrust bays have pairs of double hung sash windows. The roofscape features a pair of rendered chimneys. A set of concrete stairs goes from the verandah to the garden.
