The property is considered to have architectural significance and historical ties to Ranelagh Estate, which was developed in the 1920s based on a country club concept.
Ranelagh Estate’s significance is due to its “garden suburb” design and as an example of the work of the architect Walter Burley Griffin and his wife Marion Mahony Griffin in Victoria.
