The home is heritage listed, which means that the outside of the property is to be maintained sympathetically to its heritage. For example, retaining features such as the sash windows, short sheet roof etc. In order to maintain such features, there are annual rounds of grant applications to assist owners to replace said features as required. In 2009 the current owner was successful in obtaining funds through the grant application to replace the roof.

The house was purchased by the current owner in 2005 and during that time has undergo extension transformations, however, many of the heritage features have been maintained and are in working order. There are fire places in the lounge, main bedroom and dining room all of which are in working order.
