Statement of significance:

Only a few of the large Victorian Period villas erected in this area after the subdivision of the Warren Estate now remain. This is a good example of the large villas erected in the 'outer' area of the Municipality as closer settlement took place with the residential landboom of the 1970's - 80's.

Physical description: Large late Victorian villa with simple rendered facade. Timber barge board to the bay gable and cast iron detailing to the verandah and balcony. The semi-eliptical window openings are capped by moulded labels. Slate roof. Set within large, treed grounds this is now surrounded by Edwardian cottages and Californian Bungalows. It is one of a scattering of Victorian houses built within this area when the Warren Estate was first broken up. Closer settlement did not take place until the early 20th century.
