ARCHITECTURE

No 33 Alexandra Road is a single-storey house constructed in limestone, brick and rendered brick with a hipped and gable tiled roof. It is a fine expression of the Federation Bungalow style. In the 1970s two extensions were made to the original building. A studio was also constructed in the 1970s and another extension in the 1990s. It is asymmetrically composed with a thrust gable bay and a part-width return hip roofed verandah. The verandah is supported on timber posts with post brackets. There is a vertical timber balustrade that spans between the posts. The verandah flooring and balustrade were replaced in 2014. The half timbered, gable bay features a pair of double hung sash windows. There is a central entry door with a hopper light flanked by sidelights and a French double hung sash window. Particular features of the house include its roofscape with jettied half-timbered gables and chimneys with rendered caps. There are rendered string courses and decorative sills. The place sits on a limestone foundation.
