The building has a with roughcast façade, various gables, slated pitched roof and decorative bargeboards. The windows are flat-headed with a mixture of timber sashes and mullioned and transomed frames. The entrance is located within a gabled porch set in the intersection of the L-plan and consists of a panelled timber door. To the gables are small shield shaped panels whilst the chimneystacks have large distinctive pots with a moulded honeycomb-like pattern.

Appraisal

Attractive L-shaped residence which displays all the picturesque elements of detailing common to many Enniskerry buildings, and combined with the elevated wooded setting, succeeds in using them to their greatest 'chocolate box' effect.
