A house representing an important component of the domestic built heritage of Ballina with the architectural value of the composition suggested by such attributes as the compact plan form; and the uniform or near-uniform proportions of the openings on each floor with those openings showing robust Tudor-esque "stucco" refinements. Having been well maintained, the elementary form and massing survive intact together with substantial quantities of the historic or original fabric, both to the exterior and to the interior, including a streamlined Vitrolite shopfront of artistic interest making a pleasing visual statement in Tone Street at street level.
