As built, this one-story, three-bay, side-gabled, Craftsman-style house was one room deep with a one- room-deep gabled rear ell with a shed-roofed porch along its left (east) side. The house has German-profile weatherboards and the replacement two-light-over-four-panel front door, centered on the fac╠žade, is sheltered by a front-gabled porch supported by tapered wood posts on brick piers with a matchstick railing between the piers and wood shingles in the gable. In 2005 the house was considerably enlarged by extending the rear ell to a full width gable that is three bays deep over a raised basement (due to the slope of the lot). Modern three-over-one Craftsman-style windows were installed throughout and a small gabled entrance on the rear elevation is supported by square columns on an unpainted wood deck. Tax records date the house to 1947, but the house appears on the 1943 Sanborn map.
