Architecturally, although incomplete, the house is distinguished by its cemented porch, as compared to other contemporary villas in the study area. The house also contributes to an important precinct: of local and regional importance.
Historically, it was occupied over a long period by one of the key mining figures on the important Bendigo field: of local and regional importance.
Reminiscent of villas in nearby Castlemaine, the central masonry porch of Kisbou Court distinguished it from other hipped roof villas in the Colonial Georgian revival and Italianate styles(see 4 Edwards Street (1880-1), Froomes Road (c1863) and 25 Hall Street (c1864-9), Castlemaine). Unlike many of these examples, it no longer possesses verandah frieze work, but its deeply hipped concave profile verandah reinforces its period. The porch has stylised keystones, formed in cement, simple pilasters either side, and acroteria to its shallow parapet pediment. Vahland & Getzschmann are reputed to be the designers, having produced similar porched houses such as Falkland House (1870), 194 Eaglehawk Road, and George Wells' house in Nettle Street.
A swag-profile iron front fence, set in stone, is also unusual and notable. The interior reputedly has rich ornament in the form of plaster cornices, marble mantles and high polished skirtings-all typical of late in the 19th century.
