This vernacular house consists of a small, frame, 2-story, 2-bay core with a large, 2-story, shed-roofed rear addition. A shed-roofed porch is attached to the rear of the building as well. The entire building is clad in aluminum siding and the windows are all 1x1 sash replacements. The core has an asphalt-shingled roof and aluminum-clad cornice.

On the 1st level, the main entrance is aligned with the western window above, and there is a paired window set near the northeast corner. A full- length front porch is located on painted brick piers 3-4 feet above the sidewalk with lattice in between. The hipped-roofed structure is enclosed with two sets of triple windows.
