241 Lygon Street, Carlton
This is a single story Victorian Shop in the main shopping precinct in Lygon Street, Carlton. It has a tall rendered parapet with decoration matching the adjacent shop. The verandah to the front is simple with timber posts and a deep timber fascia. It also has the original timber valence on the side. The timber verandah is a rare surviving original example in Lygon Street.
The structure of the verandah was compromised by age and the deterioration of one of the original posts. The VHRF Committee offered a grant of $8,000 towards the cost of reconstruction and repair works to the verandah.
The works have retained as much original fabric as possible and retained the original appearance so the verandah remains as an early intact example of a timber verandah in Lygon Street.
