Significance: A very fine and typically agglomerative composition which very successfully addresses the two streets of its corner location. It displays an interesting ensemble of timber architectural detailing in the Queen Anne manner, a style important in Mosman's history and development. The heritage listing includes the fence which is contemporary with the construction of the dwelling and which forms part of the overall heritage significance of the place and its setting.

Physical description: Federation Queen Anne/Arts-&-Crafts. As is often the case in houses of this period, this is a most interesting Queen Anne/Arts-&-Crafts agglomeration. To a basic hip-roofed form are added a complex composition of gables, one of which is angled and has a broad facetted window bay; another, facing Effingham Street, is a two-storeyed wing with a shingle-aproned balcony above a wider verandah later glazed in authentic style. The verandah facing Bradley's Head Road is a single-storeyed, with sandstone piers supporting paired timber posts and decorative friezes. The house has dark red brick walls on a sandstone base, a roof of red-orange unglazed terra cotta tiles with crenellated ridges, and tall brick-and-stucco chimneys. The fence has a stone base, the front sections being iron palisading and the side having palings. There are two separate garages at the rear, addressing Effingham Street. The garden includes a mature eucalypt.
Modifications and dates: Sympathetic Minor Alteration.


Historical notes: Not researched.
