Physical description: A two-storeyed Edwardian period residence of red-brick with tiled roof topped by a metal weathervane. The building is of Federation style showing typical architectural details such as circular arched windows and doors, elaborate coloured leadlight, decorative timberwork, ornate brick chimneys and projecting bay windows. The bay window roofs are slate, and this suggests that the main tile roofing is recent. The building is set well back from the street with large open front space and is framed by mature trees and shrubs (National Trust).
Modifications and dates: Altered or extended sympathetically


Historical notes: Historical period: 1901-1920.
