Set back from South Occoneechee Street, but set very close to West Margaret Lane to its left (north), this one-story, front-gabled Craftsman-style bungalow is three bays wide and four-pile. The house has a concrete-block foundation, aluminum siding, six-over-one wood-sash windows, some paired on the side elevations, and a new corrugated metal roof. An exterior brick chimney on the left elevation extends only to the roofline. A modern exterior brick chimney on the right (south) elevation has an outdoor firebox. The entrance, centered on the façade, is sheltered by a full-width, engaged porch supported by square posts on brick piers with sawnwork brackets applied to the posts since 1992. Original German-profile weatherboards remain on the façade, under the porch roof. A shed-roofed porch on the right elevation is supported by square posts. This site was occupied by the Bivens Basket Factory according to the 1924 Sanborn map. County tax records date the building to 1931.
