This large, Neo-Colonial-style house has a two-and-a-half-story section on the right (east) and a large one-and-a-half-story wing to its left (west), added later. The two-and-a-half-story, side-gabled section is five bays wide and double-pile with three gabled dormers on the façade and an exterior brick chimney in the left gable. The house has aluminum siding and vinyl windows. The six-panel door, centered on the façade, has one-light-over-two-panel sidelights and an arched transom. It is sheltered by a flat-roofed porch supported by square columns with a rectilinear-patterned roof balustrade. A similar railing flanks the steps leading to the porch. A one-story, flat-roofed, screened porch on the right gable end is supported by square posts and has a rectilinear-patterned railing. A one-and-a-half-story, side- gabled wing is four bays wide with a projecting, two-bay-wide, front-gabled wing on the left end of the façade. The façade has a brick veneer, while the side elevations, front-gabled wing, and a front-gabled dormer on the façade are all sheathed with vinyl. It has vinyl windows and overhead garage doors on the rear (north) elevation. County tax records date the building to 1987 and the garage wing was completed in 2000.

The only thing separating this from a suburban McMansion is the lack of garages in the front. The eastern section isn't that bad, but the way it has metastasized westward is very suburban.
