ARCHITECTURE

No 5 Bolton Street is a single storey rendered limestone and rendered brick house with a hipped tiled roof. The lot falls away toward the rear of the property. A two storey extension has been constructed to the rear. It is a fine expression of the Federation Queen Anne style. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a thrust bay and a full width return hip roofed verandah. The verandah is supported on stop chamfered timber posts with a decorative frieze. The verandah and its details are a replacement. A vertical timber balustrade spans between the posts. A section of the return verandah on the west elevation has been enclosed. The thrust bay features a bay window with double hung sash windows. There is central door and hopper light flanked by sidelights and double hung sash windows. Walls are rendered limestone with render brick quoins. The lower rendered sections are later modifications. A particular feature of the house is its richly decorative roofscape with elaborate render capped chimneys. The place retains its form and most of its details.
