This elegant example of classical architecture makes a bold statement in the streetscape, due to its size and the locally unique protruding red brick façade. The large camber-headed windows fitted with multiple panes of plate glass that are retained on this house are typical of wealthier homes of the time as is the well executed doorway with fanlight which forms the focal point of the façade.
