The company estate office and porters’ office are situated in the main lobby of the major block. The buildings are surrounded by estate grounds which are a mix of gardens and unallocated parking, the major block having a decorative inner courtyard garden and pond. Initially intended for the rental market, the flats conformed to six different types ranging from studio flats with no alcove, to studio flats with one alcove or two alcoves, and one to three bedroom flats, some with balconies.

The buildings were awarded grade II listing in January 2004.[1] The Twentieth Century Society reported the listing, saying:
