114 Anderson Drive is a particularly well detailed small villa. It is not known if James Cobban, the architect, was in any way linked to John Bridgeford Pirie or Arthur Clyne, however he was certainly familiar with their architecture. The horseshoe doorway, massing and battered base are all characteristic of buildings by Pirie and Clyne.
