From the National Register nomination:

This two-story, hip-roofed Queen Anne-style house is three bays wide and triple-pile with projecting, gabled bays on the left (west) end of the façade and on the left elevation. The house has weatherboards, one- over-one wood-sash windows and two interior corbelled brick chimneys. A double-leaf one-light-over-two- panel door is centered on the façade and has one-light-over-two-panel sidelights and a three-part transom. The entrance is sheltered by a hip-roofed porch that extends the full width of the façade and wraps around the right (east) elevation. The porch is supported by slender Tuscan columns and has an original wood railing and a low gable marking the entrance. A pedimented dormer on the right end of the façade has a single-light fixed window and there are three small casement windows in the pedimented front gable. There is an inset second-floor porch at the right rear, a one-story gabled ell at the left rear, and a one-story, hip-roofed wing near the center of the rear elevation. A 1999 metal fence extends along the sidewalk at the front of the property. The house was built in 1908 for Samuel Mallett Gattis. Gattis was born in Hillsborough in 1863, graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1884, and later studied law. He served as clerk of Orange County Superior Court 1889-1894 and represented Orange County in the General Assembly during the sessions of 1899, 1901, and 1903, serving as Speaker of the House in the latter session.
