Buildings, which due to their character create the atmosphere of Peppermint Grove, therefore should be retained, but may be altered and extended in a manner which is both discrete and sympathetic to the original fabric and character so that a significant proportion of the original building is retained and from the street the additions are seen to be a continuation of the same fabric and character.

of merchant's residence, has cultural heritage significance

Queen Anne style;
it is part of a group of merchants residences built in the
first decade of this century;
the group is part of a wider townscape area;

of the social developmentof the suburb

This is a fine example of the Queen Anne style, although its
verandah has lost decorative details to offset the boldness of
the blood and bandages wall treatment. The residence is
given prominence through its symmetrical street facade being
raised above a tennis court.

This residence is a textbook example of the Queen Anne
style, which lacks the adaptations to local conditions shown
in the neighbouring residence at No 138.

This site reflects a significant phase of the social development
of the suburb. Some social significance.
