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

Typical of turn-of-the-century, triple-A-roofed houses, this one-story house is three bays wide and single-pile with a wide gabled ell at the right rear (northeast). The house has plain weatherboards, nine-over-six wood-sash windows on the façade, six-over-six windows on the side elevations, and diamond-shaped vents in the gables. The eight-light-over-three-panel door is sheltered by a full-width, engaged, shed-roofed porch supported by Craftsman-style tapered wood posts on brick piers with a low wood railing between the piers. The nine-over-six windows on the façade indicate that this may be a much-remodeled antebellum house, however, the house was certainly in place by 1924, when it appears on the Sanborn map, the earliest map to cover this part of the town.

I tend to agree with the nominator that this house is likely older - my guess would be that the front gable was added, along with the porch and tapered post on plinth columns. My guess would be that this was originally a simple side-gabled house, much like the original form of the Scott house on West Tryon.

This house was significantly remodeled, including construction of a large addition, in 2019-2020
