No. 49 (previously was No. 97) Silas Street is a single storey house constructed in timber framing and feather edge weatherboard cladding with a hipped and gable decramastic tile roof. It is a simple expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The place is symmetrically planned with a central door and hopper light flanked by side lights and double hung sash windows. The facade features a full width skillion roofed verandah supported on steel posts. The place is consistent with the pattern of development in Plympton and plays an important role in the pattern of development of a working class suburb.
