Bungalow w Arts & Crafts / Federation Filigree Influences
No 35 Hamilton Street is a single storey house constructed in brick and rendered brick with a hipped and gable corrugated iron roof. It is a very fine expression of the Federation Filigree style. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a full width return bullnose verandah. The verandah is supported on turned timber posts with fretwork friezes. A timber balustrade spans between the posts. There is a central door and hopper light flanked by sidelights and bay windows. The bay windows extend above the verandah line and feature pairs of double hung sash windows. The half-timbered gables sit above the bay windows. The roofscape features tall chimneys with rendered chimney caps.
The place retains its form and details. There are additions to the rear of the house.
The place is consistent with the building pattern in the Precinct. The place plays an important role in the pattern of development of a middle class suburb.
