ARCHITECTURE

No 45 Canning Highway is a single storey building constructed in limestone and brick with a hipped corrugated iron roof. It is a simple expression of the Federation Bungalow style. Its original use was a residence and has since been converted to offices. The front elevation is symmetrically planned with a centrally placed front door flanked by pairs of windows. The facade features a full width verandah with a hipped roof. The verandah is on timber posts over a timber floor. Steps lead down to the garden. The entrance is emphasised by a small gable in the verandah roof. 
The place has been modified, but retains its basic form.
