Physical description: This house originally formed a pair with its neighbour No. 104 River Street however number 104 has been obscured by the addition of a two storey house to the front of the block. A typical federation home with hipped iron roof, off set projecting gables and bull nosed verandahs to all sides. Cast iron frieze to verandah. Extensive lawn areas creating great feeling of openness and access to cooling breezes. In recent years the house has been restored. It shows good quality joinery. Nice little architectural details such as metal ridge capping remain.
