89 Studley Road is of local historical and architectural significance as a fine and highly externally intact example of Streamlined Moderne as applied in suburban Melbourne design at the end of the interwar period and into the early years of World War II.
The house at 89 Studley Park Road, Kew, is a double-storey interwar residence of cream brick construction with Streamlined Moderne overtones. The double-fronted asymmetrical massing of the facade comprises two main bays; a large parapeted section of cuboid form to the west and a smaller bay with hipped roof to the east. The hipped roof is finished with brown concrete tiles, box gutters concealed behind deep timber fascias and bold cream brick chimneys with a fine band of brown tapestry brick. The western bay is relieved by a curved corner at the western end with other references to the style including curved windows, a porthole window, fine horizontal banding of tapestry brick and wrought iron wall lights. A wide single-storey bay projects from the eastern section which provides for the main entrance with an open terrace above; an area contained by a fine wrought iron balustrade. The entrance is surrounded by a soldier course of brown tapestry brick and the front door is obscured by a wrought iron screen door. Fenestration is generally regular between floors and windows comprise steel-framed casement and fixed sashes, with distinctive curved glazing at the north-west corner of the building. The house appears to be intact as constructed.
A low brown brick fence appears to be original, however it is appears that minor alterations may have been made adjacent to the driveway.
