ARCHITECTURE

No 50 (previously know as No 90) Hubble Street is a single-story cottage constructed in limestone and brick with a hipped corrugated iron roof. It is a fine and simple expression of the Federation Bungalow style. It is asymmetrically planned with an offset entrance flanked by a window. The facade features a full-width bullnose verandah supported on timber posts. All openings have brick quoins.
