Little Milton, built in 1926, and designed by Muriel Stott in association with Stephenson & Meldrum, is of architectural, historical and social significance at the State level. Architecturally, it is of significance as an outstanding example of an Old English/Arts & Crafts style interwar mansion. Its massing and detailing are skilfully executed, and the house sits comfortably in its landscaped environs. The house is the most important work of Muriel Milicent Stott who was one of only a handful of women architects working in Melbourne in the 1920's. The surviving landscape elements are also significant for being designed by Edna Walling, the most celebrated garden designer of the era. The house is historically significant for its fifty year association with the Moran family of the famous grocery firm Moran & Cato. Socially, the house is significant as an outstanding example of an interwar mansion, many of which were built on lots created by the breakup of large 19th century Toorak estates such an Whernside. It is also of social interest that, unusually for the time, its architecture and landscape design were executed by women.
