One of the early structures (lot 22) built in the Gimghoul-Piney Prospect Development. This one-story dwelling was built in 1924 for L. J. and Vivian Phipps.

Large segmental arched Doric entrance porch and full-length front raised patio. Buff-colored brick exterior end chimneys have arched recessed panels that accommodate lattice supports for plants. A rear addition extends on the west side. Built for James Phipps, a Chapel Hill attorney, and his wife Vivian."
