Statement of significance:

Excellent example of the masonry block characteristic indentation pattern referred to as 'spider pattern' can be seen on the fence. Its matching front gables are unusual for Dubbo. They are located above projecting rectangular bays, a characteristic feature of the period. The turned timber posts are also the exception rather than the rule in Dubbo. Good example of tuck-pointing.
