Architecturally, one of a small group of European modern designs in Melbourne, which contains most of the elements used by this group, but is not composed as successfully as other examples (see Beaumont Estate, Ivanhoe) of regional importance.
Historically, one of the few totally modern houses in Essendon and in one of the later middle class subdivisions; of local interest.
Resembling 34 Peterleigh Grove, this two storey cream brick house is more unexpectedly Modern in its design, given the Neo Tudor and European villa styles adjoining. Composed of geometric, interlocking forms, using glass bricks, steel windows and flat concrete roofing, this house reflects the European Modern domestic styles which had been used in Victoria only since the start of the 1930s. The house has a high degree of external integrity when viewed from the street and is in good condition.
The garden setting reflects this period, if not the modern stylism. The front fence is complementary.
The house is a Significant feature within the Peterleigh Grove precinct, which exclusively comprises inter-war housing in varying styles.
