ARCHITECTURE

Inter-War, Gable Porch House Bungalow

No 45 Fraser Street is a single storey house constructed in timber framing and weatherboard cladding with a hipped corrugated iron roof. It is a fine expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The place is located on a corner lot that addresses Fraser Street and Easton Street. It is asymmetrically composed with a full width return hipped roof verandah. The verandah is supported on timber posts with post brackets. A vertical timber balustrade spans between the posts. A set of masonry steps lead down from the verandah to the garden. There is a central door and hopper light flanked by sidelights and single pane double hung sash windows.
