This house is a unique example of the Italianate style in its neighborhood, and it is remarkably intact. Two stories high and three bays wide, its rectangular massing creates a balanced, symmetrical façade. The house has a flat roof and a gable roof at its rear. A shallow one-story wing on the west façade creates an entrance foyer and shelters the front door. The house features decorations that are typical of Italianate architecture, such as wide fascia trim and eave brackets, and wide corner boards. The house is of frame construction and clad in white-painted wood clapboard. The windows are six-over-six and four-over-four double hung originals with storm guards set in front of them, and feature hood moldings. All of the windows are framed by black shutters. One interior brick chimney is located toward the center of the house.
