ARCHITECTURE

Late Victorian / Early Federation / Terraces w Simple Regency Influences 

No. 6 (previously was no. 18) Glyde street is a pair of two storey town houses constructed in limestone and rendered brick with a low pitched metal deck skillion roof. It is a fine example of a pair of Federation period houses. The front elevation is symmetrically planned with a two storey full width bullnose roofed verandah. The verandah is supported on timber posts with post brackets. The ground floor level verandah has a concrete and tiled floor while the upper level has a timber floor. The upper floor has a simple timber balustrade. The front doors have hopper lights and are located adjacent to the party wall. The doors are flanked by double hung sash windows. The windows and doors have decorative rendered architraves. A parapet rises above the verandah roofline. The parapet would appear to have been simplified over time.
