The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a full width return skillion roofed verandah. The entry is located deep in the verandah and addresses the street. The front facade features two bay windows. Each bay window has casement windows. The diagonally set bay window is characteristic of the style and a niche in the front wall is another feature. The roofscape features a pair of rendered chimneys.
