A sewerage diagram dated 1907 shows Duplex, 130 Marine Terrace as a large brick house fronting the property boundaries on both Marine Terrace and Ada Street, with a verandah wrapping the corner. At the rear of the house was a weatherboard bathroom and verandah. A large weatherboard outbuilding was located behind the house. There was a common wall between this house and No. 132 next door.
