The City of Nanaimo heritage registry states that "Spence House was built for Lucy Spence around 1918 and is a very good example of an eclectic Edwardian design. The sophisticated design has unusual features, most notably the distinctive scalloped inset arch over the second floor balcony's (front and rear) and the tapered base. The buildings height, mass and location among much smaller, newer and more modest homes makes it a distinctive neighbourhood landmark".
