This one-story, gable-on-hip-roofed Ranch house is remarkably wide -- six bays and double-pile with a projecting, hip-roofed bay centered on the fac╠žade. The house has a brick veneer, interior brick chimney, and grouped, stacked awning windows. A picture window on the projecting bay is flanked by stacked awning windows. The entrance, a four-panel door with four-light sidelights, is located to the right (west) of the projecting bay and is inset slightly with the roof supported by decorative metal posts. The right and left (east) bays have board-and-batten on the upper two-thirds of the walls and there are overhead garage doors on the left elevation. A gable-on-hip-roofed wing at the rear (south) has an inset, screened porch supported by full-height brick piers. County tax records date the building to 1957.
