Similar second floor but flanking 12-pane sashes here. Plain eaves and parallel roofs at right-angles to the street, hipped to front, each containing front dormer window under monopitch roof. Left side of No.1 to Anzac Street altered; it has blocked round-headed alcove in position of original door, 20th century door further back, and windows are 20th century sashes with glazing bars.
