This triple-A-roofed I-house is highly decorative with a bracketed cornice and sawn bargeboards in the gables. The building has plain weatherboards, two-over-two wood-sash windows, notched siding in the front gable, and diamond-shaped vents in all of the gables. Windows in the front gable and the gabled end have sawnwork over the molded lintels. The replacement front door is sheltered by a full-width, hip-roofed porch supported by grouped posts on brick piers with sawn spandrels. There is a two-story gabled ell at the right rear (southwest) with a two-story, hip-roofed section to the left (east) of the ell with a group of six-over-six windows with three-light transoms on the left elevation. A one-story, shed-roofed section beyond the two-story hip- roofed section has six-over-six windows and a railing around the roof. There is a one-story, flat-roofed screened porch on the right (west) elevation of the rear ell that is supported by square posts on a brick knee wall. County tax records date the building to 1891.
