Early Modern, International

No 26 Fraser Street is a single storey house constructed in steel framing, timber cladding and fibrous cement cladding with a low pitched roof and an undercroft. It is a fine expression of the Post-World War II International style. It is asymmetrically composed with a ā€˜Lā€™ shaped plan. The eastern wing of the house is set parallel to the lot boundary with the western wing set at a slight angle to it. A skillion roofed verandah spans the internal elevations of the 'L' shape. The verandah features a steel balustrade and is supported on steel columns. A steel framed stair case leads from the undercroft to the verandah. The facade features both operable and fixed light windows.
