The decorative motif around the windows is quite striking.
The small windows on either side of the chimney with a fan-shaped leadlight design are really gorgous.
Pyramid-shaped roofs was a feature of the "Moderne" style of architecture.

Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School Park Street campus is busy purchasing properties in Park Street and Ardmillan Road, and St Columba's is snapping up houses in Buckley Street and Lorraine Street.
It can't be long before they all meet in the middle.
Rather more insidious than property developers, these schools are quietly chewing up our suburbs - perfectly good homes are now empty awaiting the implementation of some Master Plan.
Is any responsible planning body taking note, I wonder? Do we want three super-campuses in the centre of Moonee Ponds/Essendon? Is three enough?
Where is Save Our Suburbs now?
