Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 28, 1987):
This structure (1929) took its shape from the surrounding landscape and is subtly connected to its natural environment by natural feeling forms in its style and the native materials used to construct it. The texture of the stonework and its rough courses mimicking the local geology are its only "ornament", again using its surrounding environment to develop its appearance and form.

Condition:
This building is in satisfactory condition, having undergone a major rehabilitation in 2005.

There are no changes reported.
