Statement of significance:

Good Inter-War example of a mixture of Federation and traditional Georgian influences, probably late 1920's. The dominant roof form is what gives the building its appeal. The low pitch and clear straight lines give an impression of lightness, despite the large size. Dense vegetation behind creates a fine backdrop.
