Impressively sited on a large lot with a brick retaining wall extending along the sidewalk, this one-and- a-half-story, Craftsman-style bungalow retains a high level of material integrity. The side-gabled bungalow is three bays wide and double-pile with a gabled dormer centered on the façade and a full-width gabled rear wing. The house has a brick veneer, exterior brick chimney on the left (west) elevation, one-over-one wood-sash windows, and exposed rafter tails. The gabled dormer has German-profile weatherboards and a pair of one- over-one windows. The six-light-over-two-panel door, centered on the façade, is sheltered by a full-width, engaged shed-roofed porch supported by brick posts on brick piers with a brick balustrade between the piers. A one-story, hip-roofed wing at the left rear (northwest) was constructed with a brick veneer that mimics the front porch supports and balustrade, though the grouped awning windows contrast sharply with the fenestration of the original house. There is a shed-roofed screened porch to the rear (north) of the addition. County tax records date the building to 1931. The side addition and screened porch were constructed in 1987
