Gablets provide ventilation and mark the square bay windows on the south and east corners of the house. There are three chimneys finished wiht roughcast render and brick caps.

The roof is of corrugated steel, trimmed with plain timber barge boards and the rafters are exposed on the eaves. The walls are of face red brick.

The verandah faces the street, returning on the sides to terminate in gabled side wings. It is supoprted on timber posts with curved brackets and a slatted balustrade. The entry gable is marked with battened fibro above a slated arch.

Casement winodws are used on the corner bays and the bay in the side wings. Arched windows are either side of the entry. French doors also open to the verandah. The front door is a generous panelled door with art nouveau patterned lead light to the door, sidelights and toplight. Leadlight is also used on the corner bay windows. The windows have rendered sills.

Bridgeview is in a prominent position overlooking Windsor Bridge and Thompson square, making it something of a local landmark.
