1 South Anne Street is an early twentieth-century commercial building by Patrick Munden, characterized by eclectic detailing, including a curvilinear parapet, floating cornice and a double-height oriel that is rather domestic in character and retains stained-glass top panes. The blend of styles, including classical and Dutch revival, is typical of the period and is enhanced by contrasting orange brick and granite. It contributes to the eclectic and varied character of South Anne Street, a thoroughfare laid out originally as a residential street in the eighteenth century, but now commercial and defined by a mix of styles and periods.
