ARCHITECTURE

No 24 Bedford Street is a single storey house constructed in rendered brick with a hipped and gable corrugated iron roof. It is a good expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a thrust gable bay and a part width return skillion roofed verandah. The verandah is set on turned timber posts over a concrete floor. The verandah terminates at the gabled thrust bay. There is a central door and hopper light flanked by sidelights and a double hung French window. The half timbered, gable bay features a pair of double hung windows in the thrust bay. The roofscape features rendered chimneys. A set of concrete stairs go from the verandah to the garden.
