Exterior: The Annandale house is a two and one-half storey frame building resting on a concrete and brick foundation. Perhaps its most striking feature is the bell cast hip roof with bell cast hip dormers on the north and east slopes and decorative wood brackets on the underside of the exaggerated eaves. Other interesting features include a porch with semicircular doorways, an east porch with a bell cast roof, bay windows and corbelled chimneys.
South of the house stands a single vehicle frame garage with many repeated, scaled-down decorative elements found on the house. These features include a bell cast hip roof and wood eave brackets as well as horizontal bevel siding.

Shiplap ground siding, wood shingles upper storey siding, recessed porch with additional open porch, decorative chimney.
Interior: Some interoir features include two main floor fireplaces, period wainscot and woodwork throughout the house and an elaborate staircase east of the main foyer.
Environment: The house is located on a corner lot in the London Road area of Lethbridge southeast to the central business district. The landscaping (a lawn, a series of hedges and some shrubbery) does not appear to date from the early years of the house. The London Road district exhibits houses of a similar vintage and style reflecting its status as one of Lethbridge's wealthier districts. The Hardie residence which has already been designated as a Registered Historic Resource is located in the area. Residential corner of high traffic intersection.
