The brick-built structure consists of two storeys and an attic with two dormer windows. The roof is tiled. There is a later two-storey extension to the side, and another added in the 20th century. The central canopied doorcase is flanked by two fluted Doric pilastersDecorative architectural element used to give the appearance of a supporting column, to articulate an extent of wall..

Sir Ralph Denham Rayment Moor, High Commissioner of the British Southern Nigeria Protectorate, is among the house’s former distinguished residents. A few years after his retirement on the grounds of ill health he was found dead at The Homestead on 14 September 1909, having poisoned himself.[2]
