(Below in italics is from the National Register listing; not verified for accuracy by this author.)

The one-and-a-half-story, side-gabled bungalow has been altered with the addition of a two-story wing at the right rear (southeast) for which the main roofline has been raised to meet the hipped roof of the rear wing. The house is three bays wide and double-pile with a gabled dormer centered on the façade. The house has weatherboards, two interior brick chimneys, and a fifteen-light French door. There are nineteen-over-two, Victorian-style, wood-sash windows on the first-floor façade, nine-over-one-windows in the dormer, and vents in the side gables. A full-width, engaged, shed-roofed porch is supported by tapered, fluted posts on brick piers with a low wood railing between the piers. There is a later garden window in the left (north) gabled end. A one- story, gabled ell extends from the left rear and a two-story wing with three-over-one, Craftsman-style, wood- sash windows, extends from the right rear. County tax records date the building to 1902. It was constructed as a one-story, side-gabled house, but was updated in the 1930s with the addition of the front-gabled dormer and Craftsman-style porch. The two-story rear wing was constructed in 1995
