It is symmetrically composed with a full-width return hip roofed verandah. The verandah is supported on turned timber posts. A timber filigree frieze and timber balustrade spans between the posts. The house is set on limestone foundations. A broad set of steps descend to the garden. There is a central door and hopper light flanked by sidelights and French double hung sash windows. The roofscape features a render capped chimney.
