(Below in italics is from the National Register listing; not verified for accuracy by this author.)

This one-story, side-gabled house is three bays wide and double-pile with a shed-roofed section at the rear. It has a brick foundation, vinyl siding, and six-over-six wood-sash windows. The six-panel door is sheltered by a shed-roofed porch supported by square columns with a wooden railing. A shed-roofed addition extends from the left (south) of the rear section. There are stone steps at the front corners of the lot and a low stone wall along the driveway to the left of the house. The property changed hands in 1967 and the house was likely constructed at that time.

I'm not sure why the nominator feels that this house was built in 1967 - it certainly appears to be an older house. The house appears on the 1955 aerial, the 1943 Sanborn map, and the 1924 Sanborn map. Clearly it has been overvinylized and has had its windows replaced, but evidence indicates that this house is pre-1924. Should be a contributing structure.
