A house representing an integral component of the late nineteenth-century domestic built heritage of Westport with the architectural value of the composition suggested by such attributes as the compact rectilinear plan form centred on a featureless doorcase; and the very slight diminishing in scale of the openings on each floor producing a feint graduated visual impression. Having been well maintained, the elementary form and massing survive intact together with quantities of the historic or original fabric, thereby upholding much of the character or integrity of a house making a pleasing visual statement in Tober Hill Street.
