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

The oldest house on this block, this one-and-a-half-story, side-gabled, Craftsman-style bungalow is three bays wide and double-pile with a gabled dormer on the right (east) end of the fac╠žade. The house has vinyl siding with vinyl-covered knee brackets in the gables and replacement vinyl windows in the dormer. The windows are six-over-one Craftsman-style wood-sash windows. The fifteen-light French door has ten-light sidelights and is sheltered by a two-bay-wide, front-gabled porch supported by fluted columns on brick piers with three six-light windows in the gable. There is a projecting shed-roofed bay and an exterior brick chimney on the right elevation and a slender brick chimney on the left elevation. A one-and-a-half-story, full-width, gabled rear ell has gabled dormers on its right and left elevations and a one-story, shed-roofed porch at the rear. There is a low stone wall at the street. County tax records date the building to 1915.

It appears that the windows in the gable have been replaced since the above was written in 2014.
