This substantial detached house is set back from the street in its own grounds giving it an imposing setting. The subtle breakfront and varying treatment of fenestration on each floor are apparent architectural features. The carved stone and timber doorcase adds artistic interest in this plain façade. High quality stone masonry is apparent in the execution of the house, the related outbuildings and ashlar entrance piers.
