The Property - This individual detached house was built in 1910 to a design approved by Parker & Unwin, the principal architects of the Garden City, for a local tradesman, Mr James.

A five bar gate opens to the block paved driveway which provides good off-street parking and leads to the detached garage.

A particularly attractive feature is the walled garden with patio, brick-built barbeque and adjoining pergola. Shed.
