The very English Italianate terraces were built in bluestone with stuccoed decrations incorporating classical elements including quoining, parapets, faceted bay windows on the ground floor and large aediculed windows on the upper storeys. The terrace has a prominent fence and gateposts which complete the composition.  Cast iron lacework  balconies were later added.  The terraces complement the large collection of classic buildings which line North Terrace.

The terraces are listed on the Register of the National Estate and are of high cultural significance to Adelaide.
