A well-appointed, middle-size house incorporating distinctive features, including canted bay windows and overhanging eaves, which contribute to the architectural appeal of the site. Although retaining much of its original form and massing, together with some important salient features and materials, some inappropriate replacement fittings to the openings have compromised some of the external expression of the composition.
