This one-story, front-gabled, Craftsman-style bungalow is three bays wide and triple-pile with two shed-roofed dormers on the left (south) elevation. The house has weatherboards, one-over-one wood-sash windows, an interior brick chimney, exposed rafter tails, and knee brackets in the gables. The one-light-over- two-panel door has matching sidelights and is sheltered by a three-bay-wide front-gabled porch supported by tapered wood posts on brick piers with a wood railing between the piers. There is a group of three three-over- one Craftsman-style windows in the porch gable. A 2004 gabled addition at the rear extends the full width of the building and has a slightly higher, front-gabled roofline [HDC]. The addition has weatherboards, an exterior brick chimney on the right (north) elevation, windows matching those on the main structure and a gabled porch at the rear. There is a stacked stone retaining wall along the sidewalk at the front of the property. The house is associated with the Bivins family, reports to have built the house in 1926
