Outstanding example of Jersey's ornate late Victorian Gothic style, using high quality materials and workmanship to showcase the builder owner's craft skills and taste. Many original features survive. Additional significance as it forms part of a pair with the adjacent large workshop, both erected by and for the builder's own use.
