The basic form of this house type has been elaborated through the addition of a canted bay and oriel window. The use of polychromatic brick ornament on the principal elevation is a characteristic typical of the Victorian period. The work of skilled craftsmen is evident in the quality of the brickwork and its detailing and the cast-iron railings. The house is enhanced by the retention of its timber sash windows and a fine Victorian doorcase.
