The oldest house on this block, this three-bay-wide, triple-A-roofed I-house has Queen Anne-style detailing and a near-full-width, one-and-a-half-story, shed-roofed rear wing. The house has plain weatherboards, replacement one-over-one wood-sash windows, and two interior corbelled brick chimneys. The gable on the fac╠žade has decorative shingles and an arched louvered vent. The double-leaf one-light-over-two- panel door has a two-light transom and is sheltered by a full-width, hip-roofed porch with a projecting gabled bay centered on the porch. The porch is supported by grouped square posts with decorative brackets in circular and semicircular patterns. The house is set back on the site with a large, well-landscaped lot. The house is associated with Bessie Gordon, though the association has not been documented.
