A creative modern interpretation of the Greek Revival style, this one-story, front-gabled, temple-form house is three bays wide and three bays deep with a wide, gabled wing at the rear. The house has a brick foundation, plain weatherboards, one-over-one windows, and an interior brick chimney. Period details include wide cornerboards and eave returns. The entrance, on the right (east) end of the fac╠žade is sheltered by a full- width, engaged portico supported by square columns and with flush sheathing in the pediment. Six-panel doors on the right and left (west) elevations each have sidelights and transoms. The entrance on the left elevation is sheltered by a small, gabled porch on square columns. A second gable-front block stands to the rear, wider than then front section and with a projecting, pedimented gabled bay on the right elevation. A sign in front of the house reads, "It Had Wings." County tax records date the building to 1993.
