Square-headed central door opening with rendered surround framing glazed timber panelled door.

A house representing an integral component of the domestic built heritage of Westport with the architectural value of the composition suggested by such traits as the compact rectilinear plan form centred on a featureless doorcase; the very slight diminishing in scale of the openings on each floor producing a feint graduated visual impression; and the high pitched roofline. 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, thus upholding the character or integrity of a house making a pleasing visual statement in the streetscape.
