Redcourt is of state significance as one of the very earliest manifestations of a domestic Queen Anne Revival influenced mode in Melbourne. A very grand and modern house for its time, it remains substantially externally intact and retains some of its original grounds, which reinforce the original design intent of its architects, the notable firm Reed Henderson & Smart
506 Orrong Road, Armadale, known as Redcourt is located in a prestigious and exclusively residential section of Armadale northeast of the intersection of Orrong and Dandenong Roads. The house occupies an elevated site overlooking the intersection from which it presents a long frontage to Orrong Road. In this area, Orrong Road is a tree-lined avenue, constructed in modern materials with concrete gutters and bitumen surfacing to the road and footpaths and well-maintained nature strips. The landscape elements combine to create an air of quiet refinement even by local standards, Redcourt is a large residence. The high fence in red face brick and extensive tennis courts at the front of the property fail to obscure the structure beyond. The house extends over two storeys built on a number of different levels. It is constructed in red face brick with a tiled roof and simple white painted joinery. Stylistically, the building draws upon medieval precedents evident in its cantilevering gables supported on ornate, timber brackets, its half timbering in the gable ends and buttressed chimney elements which extend high above the roofline. A minor tiled gable, supported on elaborately carved bracket covers the entry and segmental arched windows and a large oriel bay window are other features of the facade.
A number of outbuildings in a similar style are also present on the site.
