The Faucette House is a one-story, side-gabled frame house that is three bays wide and single-pile with a gabled ell at the right rear (southwest). The house has plain weatherboards with German-profile weatherboards on the front-gabled dormer. It has a replacement metal roof, a wide fascia and cornice returns, an interior brick chimney, and an exterior brick chimney on the rear ell. The four-over-four wood-sash windows have pedimented surrounds. There are six-over-six wood-sash windows with pedimented surrounds on the rear ell and there is a pair of six-light windows with a pedimented surround and exposed rafter tails in the front dormer. The double-leaf two-panel front door has a two-light transom and is sheltered by a near-full-width, shed-roofed porch supported by Craftsman-style tapered wood posts on brick piers. A shed-roofed section to the left (east) of the rear ell has German-profile weatherboards and a later roof with a steeper pitch that has wood shingles in the gable. County tax records date the building to 1922 and a sign in the front yard indicates that it is the Faucette House c. 1922.
