Likely constructed as a Craftsman-style cottage, this one-story, front-gabled house has been extensively altered with the enclosure of the front porch and the addition of a prominent side-gabled wing on the right (south) elevation, flush with the façade. The house is three bays wide and triple-pile with vinyl siding, three- over-one Craftsman-style wood-sash windows, and an interior brick chimney. The three-light-over-two-panel Craftsman-style door is sheltered by a two-bay-wide, front-gabled porch that has been enclosed with vinyl-sided supports and screens. There also is a large gabled wing projecting from the left rear (northeast) of the original house. The orientation of the house has been altered with an entrance on the right side-gabled wing serving as the main entrance. The wing is three bays wide with stacked awning windows flanking the four-light-over-one- panel door on the façade. There is a wide brick chimney on the rear of this wing. County tax records date the building to 1932.
