Statement of significance:

Fine quality Federation period house. Although somewhat compromised by later additions the building still displays much original detail of interest including ridge tiling casement windows and roughcast render.
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: Large Federation period house. Symmetrical design. Adopts traditional Georgian form. High pitched terracotta tiled roof. Tuck-pointed face brick walls. Verandah returns to each side. Features round Tuscan style timber posts probably not original. Verandah floor now retiled. Casement windows with small lower panes. Arched recessed entry.
Modifications and dates: Tuscan style timber posts, probably not original. Verandah floor now retiled. Other parts of the building also recently reconstructed. Difficult to distinguish original from more recent work. Unsympathetic high brick fence.
