As with flats and houses from this period in other parts of Melbourne different colour bricks are used as highlights. There is a line of dark bricks on the low wall and columns surrounding the property. Also on the facade of almost at the bottom of the upper and lower storey windows, at the top of the windows and on the chimney.
You may also have noticed the curved wall around the entrance and the stairwell constructed completely of dark manganese bricks that make this building unique in Carlton North, possibly all of Carlton, Melbourne or perhaps even the whole world.
