ARCHITECTURE

Federation / Post WWII Adapt. / Bungalow

No. 4 (previously was no. 16) Glyde street is a single storey house constructed in limestone and rendered brick with a hipped corrugated iron roof. It is an example of a Federation period house. It has been adapted in the immediate Post- World War II period and further adapted in the early twenty-first century. The front elevation is symmetrically planned with a central door flanked by picture and side hung sash windows. The facade features a full width concrete roofed verandah supported by paired steel posts over a concrete floor. The verandah is set over a high rusticated stone foundation wall that incorporates a single garage. A long flight of steps with steel balustrades and handrails spans from the garden level to the verandah.
