The railway residence, built in 1888 for Charles Nott, owner of the 1889 Kenilworth Villa, by the local builder, James Adamson, and acquired by the Victorian Railways in about 1900, is significant to Cardinia Shire because of the associations with these prominent men and, because of its size, as evidence of the importance of the rail transport network in the nineteenth-century. The bunya bunya tree has significance for its associations with the earliest history of the property and Nott, and as a rare example of its type.
BEACONSFIELD STATION MASTER'S RESIDENCE, - Physical Description 1
This gabled and weatherboarded 19th century house with cemented brick Victorian-era chimneys is set by the railway within the reserve and next to a mature and notable bunya bunya which may be linked with the bunya at the drive of Kenilworth. Twin gabled roof forms face the side elevation and a gabled projecting bay faces the street, with a central window with architraves. A skillion verandah (new?) is on the side elevation.
There appears to be mature shrubs from a previous garden which has since overgrown and some new yard fencing in place of what may have been pickets.
