Nos.44 and 46 Cabra Road were likely constructed as a pair by the same builder or developer. They maintain a coherent architectural form, though some slight variations in the design of the entrance porches are evident. Of particular note is the entrance porch which contains a columnar doorcase complete with timber panelled door, Ionic columns and fanlight. Set back from the street within a large walled garden, it is one of the most imposing houses on Cabra Road. No.44 was named 'Eglington' on the 1886 map.
