ARCHITECTURE

Aesthetic & Representative

No 74 Allen Street is a single storey house constructed in tuck pointed brickwork with a hipped and gable corrugated iron roof. It is an expression of the Inter-War California Bungalow style. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a thrust gable bay and a part width skillion roofed verandah. The verandah is set on timber posts on brick piers. The verandah extends over the thrust bay to become an awning. The half timbered, gable thrust bay features a pair of double hung sash windows. There is a central front door and hopper light flanked by side lights and a pair of double hung sash windows. Concrete steps go from the verandah to the garden.
