What is significant? The 1920 shop and dwelling and the surrounding site to the title boundaries.
How is it significant? The shop and dwelling is historically and aesthetically significant to the Shire of Nillumbik.
Why is it significant? The shop and dwelling (which may originally have been two shops) is historically significant because it was constructed within the subdivision created by the leading orchardist, William Gray, was one of the earliest properties constructed after the arrival of the railway to Hurstbridge (1912) and illustrates the growth and change that its arrival brought to the town; while the modest scale of the property reflects the relative poverty of Hurstbridge in the early years of the 20th century (Criteria A & H). The shop and dwelling is aesthetically significant because it is an integral component of a cluster of 1910 and 1920s buildings that gives the centre of Hurstbridge its special character (Criterion E).
