Physical Description

House, 41 Marmion Street is a single storey brick and zincalume house constructed in the Federation Bungalow style of Architecture. The walls are rendered and face brick. The roof is hipped and gabled and clad with zincalume, and has exposed rafters. There are two red face brick corbelled chimneys evident. The small gable has a timber roof vent. The verandah is under the main zincalume roof supported by timber posts with wide roof supports, and returns down the side of the house. The asymmetrical front façade has a protruding front room under the large gable roof with a timber framed sash window under a zincalume awning supported by timber brackets. The facade under the verandah roof is difficult to describe due to large vegetation in the front yard. The house is situated at street level. There is a medium height red face brick fence to the front boundary line.
