Roosevelt Warner, an African-American brickmason, built this two-story, pyramidal-roofed, Colonial Revival-style house for himself around 1937. The house is three bays wide and double-pile with a brick veneer, exterior end brick chimneys, and eight-over-eight wood-sash windows. The entrance is centered on the façade and features double-leaf, ten-light French doors in a classical surround with fluted pilasters and a broken pediment. On each side of the entrance is a replacement twenty-light picture window, each flanked by four- over-four windows. There is a one-story, hip-roofed brick sunroom on the left (east) elevation with grouped double-hung windows and an entrance on the façade. A one-story, hip-roofed porch on the right (west) elevation is supported by fluted square columns. It has a replacement railing at the roofline and has been enclosed with screens. A two-story, hip-roofed wing extends nearly the full width of the rear elevation and there is a one-story, flat-roofed brick ell at the right rear (southwest). A one-story, shed-roofed, frame addition at the left rear has aluminum siding and a garage bay at the basement level. County tax records date the building to 1937.
