An elegantly-proportioned substantial house, which has been well maintained retaining most of its original form and early character. Positioned on an elevated site, the house forms an attractive landmark on Dunmore Road, contributing to the historic character of an area that has been much developed in the late twentieth century. The fine gateway, incorporating early surviving cast-iron gates, forms a picturesque feature in the streetscape.
