Description

Construction years: 1905-
Physical description: An impressive freestanding stone terrace c.1905. It has a slate roof with skillion corrugated iron balcony roof. The verandah and balcony have stop chamfered posts with limited cast iron decoration (they may have lost some detail but appear to be authentic). There is a moulded chimney with terra cotta pot. Outstanding features are French doors to balcony, and the elaborate timber frame is excellent. There are double hung windows downstairs and the main door has a skylight. Apart from possible loss of detail, the only major alteration is the fence.
