Architecture

Inter-War Porch House Bungalow with Federation Influences.

No. 75 (previously was no. 167) Duke Street is a single-storey cottage constructed of timber framing, weatherboard and fibro cladding with a hipped corrugated iron roof. There are later additions to the rear. It is a simple expression of the Post-World War II Bungalow style.

The place is consistent with the pattern of development in Plympton and plays an important role in the pattern of development of a working class suburb.
