No 1 is a Californian Bungalow with leadlight in a five panel casement square bay window with fanlights and in a very large panel in the front door. The bay window is a particularly beautiful example of this style of leadlight in a bungalow though it is somewhat unusual because of the fanlights which are not all that common in bungalows because of the slightly lower ceiling height in comparison to the earlier Federation homes.
