Two bay, two-story street-facing gable, rectangular footprint. The walls are coated with textured stucco or thin stone. The two equally spaced second floor windows are one over one replacement units typical for the house. The front door is directly below the left unit beneath a full width shed roof for the two-bay porch. There are two windows adjacent to the door, one in the center, the other aligned with the right-hand unit above. A rectangular louver is centered in the stuccoed gable end. The north facade has three typical windows at the second floor level above a typical to the rear and a small unit to the front. The south facade has four typical windows at each level. There is a one-story shed extension across 2/3 of the rear starting at the NE corner, and a small chimney in the center of the ridge.


Property first appears on 1918 map; does not appear on 1911 map and thus the c. 1915 construction date. (Sanborn Atlas)
