The two-story, side-gabled frame structure is said to have been a carriage house or barn, constructed for 109 North Hassell Street and dating from 1921, but it was converted to a multi-unit residence prior to 1963. The building is five bays wide and has German-profile weatherboards, a 5V metal roof, exposed rafter tails, an interior brick chimney, and vinyl windows throughout. It retains original arched windows and small round windows at the second-floor level. There are two six-light-over-three-panel doors on the first-floor façade, each sheltered by a small gabled roof supported by square posts. An exterior wood stair on the left (south) elevation accesses the second floor. Bellinger dates the building to 1921. According to Hillsborough resident Tom Roberts, the building was known locally as the “Honeymoon House” as many newly married couples would start their lives together here before moving into a larger house in town.
