The house is located on an elevated property overlooking Tahunanui Beach and Tasman Bay.
The design is influenced by the art and craft design movement, and is finely detailed.
The Exterior has Lee Valley stone around the base, then plaster and timber paneling. Timber windows are accented with beautiful stain glass, and the grounds are intensively landscaped, including a trolley for the carrying of goods from beach to house with sandstone tiles used for paving around the house.
