ARCHITECTURE

Aesthetic & Representative

No 76 Allen Street is a single storey house constructed in brick and rendered brick with a hipped and gable format tiled roof. It is an expression of the Inter-War Bungalow style with some modifications. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a thrust bay and a part width return hip roofed verandah. The thrust bay features a set of three casement windows. The verandah is set on steel posts supported on a brick balustrade. There is a central front door flanked by sidelights and a set of three casement windows. The windows to the north feature a tiled awning. A concrete stair case descends to the garden.
There is what appears to be an integral garage on the north side of the house.
