ARCHITECTURE

Early Federation/ Georgian Influences/ Ethnic Adaption

No. 2 (previously no. 14) East Street is a single-storey house constructed in rendered masonry with a hipped, tiled roof. It is a simple expression of the Federation Bungalow style overlaid with a Post-World War II Immigrant Nostalgia refurbishment. The front elevation was originally symmetrically planned. The facade now has a centrally placed front door with a picture window to the north and French doors to the south. A flat, concrete-roofed verandah replaces the original verandah. The verandah is supported on steel posts with a wrought steel balustrade over a concrete floor.
