No. 87 (previously was no. 187) Duke Street is a single house constructed of timber framing and fibro cement cladding with a gabled corrugated iron roof. There are later additions to the rear.

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.
