ARCHITECTURE

Inter-War California Bungalow

No. 2 Clayton Street is a single-storey house constructed in brick and rendered brick with a gabled, tiled roof. It is a fine expression of the Inter-War California Bungalow style. It is asymmetrically composed with a thrust gable bay and a hip-roofed porch. The porch is supported on battered piers with a rendered balustrade spanning between them. The porch roof extends over the gable bay. The half-timbered, gabled bay features a set of small-paned casement lights. There is a central door flanked by sidelights and casement windows. The lower walls are face brick and the upper walls are rendered. The roofscape features a rendered chimney.
