Ground-floor segmental-arched 6/6 pane sashes, above the verandah are small segmental-arched openings with keys rising into the frieze, the 2 to the left more widely-spaced with 8 panes, 3 to the right with 15 panes. A left-hand single-storey section with hipped roof, these being the former cells with inserted garage door; sash window and barred cell window to left-hand side elevation. INTERIOR: not inspected. HISTORY: an unusually ambitious example of a guard house, to the Southgate Street entrance to the barracks.

It forms a complete functional assemblage of late Victorian/Edwardian barrack buildings, and contributes to the considerable overall significance of the Peninsula Barracks site.
