This one-and-a-half-story, side-gabled Minimal Traditional-style house is three bays wide and double- pile with a projecting, asymmetrical, front-gabled entrance bay centered on the façade. The house has aluminum siding, eight-over-eight wood-sash windows, and an exterior brick chimney on the façade. The six-light-over- two-panel door is sheltered by an aluminum awning and there are awnings over the windows on the façade and right (south) gable windows. A shed-roofed wing on the right elevation has grouped six-over-six wood-sash windows. A two-story, gabled wing at the left rear (northeast) has an interior brick chimney and there is a one-story, shed-roofed section at the right rear (northwest). A one-story, shed-roofed wing at the rear has eight-over- eight wood-sash windows. County tax records date the building to 1951.
