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

Constructed on previously undeveloped land, this two-story, front-gabled house is two bays wide and triple-pile with a projecting, two-story, front-gabled bay on the left (east) end of the façade. The house has a stone-veneered foundation, board-and-batten sheathing, and four-light casement windows, including casements that resemble two-over-two double-hung windows on the front-gabled bay. The two-light-over-one-panel door on the right (west) end of the façade is sheltered by a hip- roofed porch that wraps around the right elevation. There is fiber-cement siding under the porch, which is supported by square columns. A one-story, hip-roofed section at the rear of the right elevation has grouped awning windows and there is a one-story, gabled screened porch at the rear. The house was constructed in 2011.

A neat take on traditional massing and materials arranged in such a way as to be distinctly modern vs. pseudohistorical. While personally I prefer a truly modern house as infill in a historic district, it is rare to see a well done hybrid - and this is one.
