This house is a very fine example of a large suburban Edwardian house. The house includes some Tudor Revival detailing which is typical of the Edwardian period, seen in the staggered screen wall which is medieval inspiration, the projecting oriel window, the render decorations to the gable, and the gable front itself. The render detailing is particularly noteworthy.
