Ewbank is a two-storey Victorian building located on George Street, the main artery through Singleton. It is constructed of brick which is stuccoed and scribed to look like stone. An important architectural element is its sandstone porch which is unusual for the Singleton district. The building features a slate roof with domed ventilation vents, large pane sash windows, the original cast iron picket fence and gates to both front and side doors, as well as the original cast iron work to the first floor verandah.

Constructed in 1883-84, Ewbank was built for the Bank of New South Wales as the chambers and residence of its Singleton Branch. It was designed by architect Benjamin Backhouse whose architectural partnership, Backhouse and Lough of Sydney, designed several other chambers/residences for the Bank of New South Wales.
Following downgrading of the bank's requirements, the building was sold to Mr R Terrey who named it Ewbank and used it as a private residence.
In 1981 the Heritage Council received a nomination from Mrs R Terrey, the owner of Ewbank for the making of a Permanent Conservation Order in respect of the buiding. Mrs Terrey wanted Ewbanks future to be assured should she not continue to own it. (Branch Managers Report to the Heritage Council 27 April 1981).In view of Ewbank's architectural and historic significance a Permanent Conservation Order was placed over it on 8 January 1982.
In 1989, through the Heritage Assistance Program, Mrs R Terrey received a grant of $30,000 to assist in carrying out verandah repairs and repainting. Ewbank was transferred to the State Heritage Register on 2 April 1999.
In October 2017 a truck driver smashed into Ewbank's front verandah, wrecking it. The building suffered fire damage from the truck. The owners were awarded up to $10,000 for emergency repair works (State Heritage emergency works funding), 2NM Muswellbrook, 1/11/17).
