Inter-War / Bungalow Porch House w Californian / Bungalow Influences
No 26 Irwin Street is a single storey house constructed in rendered brick with a hipped and gable corrugated iron roof. It is an expression of the Inter-War California Bungalow style. The place has been extensively modified. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a thrust gable bay and a part width skillion roofed verandah. Its original gabled porch has been removed and a garage added to the north. The verandah spans between the garage and thrust bay. The thrust bay features a set of casement windows under a sunhood. There is a central door and hopper light flanked by sidelights and a set of casement windows.
