Rear gabled addition now addresses the street along with carport and picket gate in vegetated privacy fence. Former front verandah flat seamed galvanised mild steel roof set on timber posts set upon slope-faced roughcast piers. Some later breeze block infill at side.

Historical notes: In June 1915, the land on which this cottage originally stood - 10 acres - was sold to Lilian de Robeck, wife of Henry de Robeck, who was involved in Sydney's theatrical world. In January 1920, she mortgaged this land for £150, which appears to have been used to erect this small cottage. They first appear in Sands Directory listed under Greens Avenue in 1921. In later years, the cottage was named "Bellevue".
