ARCHITECTURE

Late Victorian / Early Federation / Domestic Carpenter

No. 8 (previously was no. 20) East street is a duplex constructed in timber framing and jarrah weatherboard cladding with a hipped corrugated iron roof. It is a good expression of the Federation Bungalow style applied to a duplex. The front elevation is symmetrically planned with a small gable in the hipped roof. The facade features a skillion roofed verandah on timber posts. The verandah extends the full width of the house with a deep lain frieze at the tops of the posts.

The adjoining 4-6 East Street residences are identical.
