Unlike the house at 6 Peterleigh Grove, this house pays tribute to Moderne rather than Modern stylism. In the Frank Lloyd Wright manner, a bold cylindrical room bay and multi-tier chimney capping are used as a combination of form and decoration (see Guggenheim Museum, New York, built 1956-9, designed 1943-6; Kaufmann House, detail only, 1936). Similarly curved forms were also popularised in Europe during 1920s. The horizontal banding of the Manganese salt-glazed brickwork and concrete porch roof and the tiered parapet capping, are all typical elements from the 1930s in Victoria, and provide a strong horizontal emphasis which is counter pointed by the tripartite Manganese 'dribble' at the entry. All of this is, however, a facade falling away to standard construction at the rear. The house is generally original except for external blind additions. The fence is also of bi-chrome brickwork and has an interlocking, stepped form. The garden setting sympathetic to the period.
The house is part of an otherwise homogenous streetscape, sharing detached siting and materials, but otherwise differing in details (refer to Peterleigh Grove and Kalimna Street precinct Hermes record).
