West elevation and forecourt, with Tweed Street on the left. C.M. Collins photographer.

Stucco (Evening Star, 19 July 1927): ‘THE FORECOURT. One traverses a beautiful herringbone brickwork path to reach the main entrance, and it is then that glimpses are caught of some of the architectural surprises to come. On two sides of the entrance porch are spacious copper troughs for flowers, and, while examining these, one also notes the concrete chute down the side entrance where the fuel for the home is to be sent helter-skeltering down to the truck which will convey it to the storeroom in the basement.’

Stucco (Evening Star 26 July 1927): ‘Following are particulars that have been supplied of the painting and glazing work at Mr Ambrose Hudson’s house, Tweed street. Mr S. F. Aburn was the contractor … Outside Work – Facine, oiled jarrah. Sashes and doors painted with fadeless green. Windows glazed with British selected plate glass, fanlights glazed with British bevelled plate glass.’
