The roof form includes an octagonal pyramid-topped tower and a steeply pitched terra cotta gable entry roof which incorporates the second floor within the roof space. A gable entrance wing includes covered porch and bay with leadlight windows. There is a separate two storey garage, large grounds with mature tree species and a stone boundary wall.

Historical notes: Designed by E Jeaffreson Jackson for William Portus Cullen, then Chief Justice of NSW. Cullen used the large garden to propogate Australian plants.

Freeland claims that its "bold gable roof, natural colouring and brooding verandah" are features that point towards Jackson having brought the bungalow to Australia.
