Appraisal

This handsome house is typical of the larger houses of this era having hipped roof with centre chimneystacks and symmetrical façade. The house retains much of its original form and structure, and is of apparent architectural quality and design. The carved doorcase although simple in design enhances the structure's appearance. The incised benchmark on the pier adds an attractive roadside feature.
