No 45 Bedford Street is a single storey house constructed in tuck-pointed brick and rendered brick with a hipped corrugated iron roof. It is a very fine expression of the Federation Bungalow style with some Arts and Crafts influences. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a part width return broken back roofed verandah. The verandah is set on turned timber posts. A St Andrew’s cross balustrade spans between the posts. There is a central door and hopper light flanked by sidelights and casement windows. There is a bay window facing on to Bedford Street. The roofscape features render capped chimneys. Render bands run across the facade.
