Architecture

Federation Gabled Domestic Carpenter

No. 80 (previously was no. 170) Duke Street is a single-storey cottage constructed in timber framing and weatherboard cladding with a gabled corrugated iron roof. It is a simple expression of the Federation Bungalow style. The facade features a full-width bull-nose roofed verandah. The verandah is supported on timber posts with post brackets. There is a large carport to the south and additions to the rear. 

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