The building is currently unoccupied, in poor condition, and demolition is possible - this would be a very sad outcome for such a distinctive building, and a great loss for New Plymouth

This large two storied villa was probably constructed in the early 1900s, with the architect likely Frank Messenger - many of the exterior features are consistent with other Messenger designed two-story villas.

The building has been converted into flats, and is currently in poor condition - the future of the building unknown, although restoration (or at least a coat of paint!) would significantly enhance the value of this building.

The building also appears in the background of a 1904 Charles Blomfield painting of the New Plymouth foreshore held by Puke Ariki.
