53 Canning Highway (map)


No 53 Canning Highway is a single storey house in rendered masonry with a hipped tiled roof. It is a much-modified expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a full width hipped roofed verandah on timber posts over a concrete floor. Steps lead down to the garden. A centrally placed front door is flanked by large ‘picture’ windows. A thrust bay has been introduced to the west side of the elevation with a hipped roof over it.
