Segmental-headed inner door opening having moulded doorcase, paned sidelights, beaded cobweb fanlight and timber panelled door.

Painted roughcast rendered walls to road entrance with ornate volute motifs terminating in square-profile rendered piers with ornate caps.


The form and size of this house are typical of early nineteenth-century classically-inspired houses. The symmetrical façade is emphasised by the rendered quoins and plinth and eaves. The house retains its fine front entrance, now in the interior, with sidelights and a highly-crafted fanlight. The limestone steps to the entrance are well carved and serve as a reminder of the quality and skill of nineteenth-century craftsmen. The outbuildings add context to the setting and form part of a working farm.
