Brick and render, single storey office building, domestic in scale, dominated by the front entry with 'State Rivers and Water Supply Commission' name plate above. The building is subtantially intact externally.

Changes include painting of the face brick quoins and lower walls, and an extension to the rear. Next to the office is the large concrete water tower used to create sufficient water pressure for distribution throughout the flat Werribee South area.

The tank sits on top of the slightly narrower base. Another important feature on the site are the two large groups of peppercorn trees. There are also several other workshop buildings on the site, these have not been inspected closely.
