Statement of significance:

An attractive face brick generous early Federation house. Various advertisements were placed in the Mudgee Guardian by women who lived here or managed the house including Murial Cox in 1910, Mrs Griffith in 1908, Mrs. Bell 1914- 1917 and in 1918 Mrs Bruce Watt.
The house has a hipped and gabled roof with Dutch gables, and a corbelled face brick chimney. A large steep gable extended over the verandah addresses the street above the entrance door. The gable is rough cast rendered with vertical strapping and finial above. The verandah is reverse curve iron supported on timber turned timber posts with elaborate cast iron brackets and frieze. The front door with fanlight is four panelled timber with deep double hung windows and louvres each side.
Set behind a modern metal picket and loop fence, the house contributes well to the Denison streetscape. (ref Snapshots MWRC)
