MIDDLETON MELLALIEU STREET SD 80 NE (north side) 2/15 No. 36 - - II House. 1906. By E. Wood and J. H. Sellers. Brick with flat concrete roof. 3 bays and 2 storeys with later flat-roofed addition to rear and garage to left. A central door with glazed upper panels sits within a brick recess all below a leaded fanlight with a dentilled transom. 2-storey canted bay window in bay 1. Windows have timber mullions (and transoms on the ground floor) and leaded lights. They are of 2, 3 or 4 lights and have stone sills. The stone-coped parapet is enriched by diamond motifs in raised brickwork and rises to a higher level at each corner. Arched window to left return. Timber-mullioned windows to rear. Chimney stack to left. The house is the first which Wood designed with a reinforced concrete flat roof.
