Statement of significance:

Quite an interesting house, architecturally and aesthetically. Combines a traditional form with some very individual, Federation style detailing. Symmetry and dominant bell cast roof create a pleasant composition. This is enhanced by the garden setting and mature trees. One of the district's finer rural farmhouses. Would have been built in the years of prosperity in dairying, early this century. Essentially intact.
Note: The State Heritage Inventory provides information about heritage items listed by local and State government agencies. The State Heritage Inventory is continually being updated by local and State agencies as new information becomes available. Read the OEH copyright and disclaimer.


Physical description: Early twentieth century weatherboard house, probably c1920. Traditional in form with Federation style detailing. Symmetrical design with dominant bell cast roof. Large gambrel and interesting, flat roofed entry feature. Displays some fine decorative timberwork. Good door with sidelights and highlight. Windows have tapered architraves. Brick chimney to rear. Built close to the road with a sympathetic timber fence. Well planted garden area with large trees behind.
Modifications and dates: Only significant alteration to the exterior is the unsympathetic modern guttering. Possible that verandah posts have been replaced as well.
Further information: Garden is an important part of the house's setting.
