The property is approached via secure gates and a long sweeping driveway. At the head of the driveway there is turning circle with the centre piece being an ornamental fountain. Upon entering the property via the vestibule entrance with a 'Minton' tiled floor, it becomes apparent that attention to detail was high on the agenda under construction and re-development. The elegant reception hall boasts a re-designed nautical art deco return staircase which leads to the upper floor via a beautiful half landing.

The gardens envelope the property and offer established areas of lawns, an ornamental pond, large greenhouse/potting shed and a wide variety of established and mature trees and shrubs. Several terraces provide outdoor social space and the gardens offer semi-seclusion amidst this desirable suburb. The external elevations to the property are finished in scribed white render complimented by several bay windows. The roof is weathered in interlocking tiles.
The property is surrounded by sandstone walling providing both security and privacy. It is included in most of the surrounding property that they cannot have windows overlooking the property.
