This small vernacular Arts and Crafts cottage stands one and a half stories and has an eave front gable end roof. The house features a gabled projection on the front façade as well as a small gable dormer. An entrance foyer is created by the enclosed porch. The house is clad in light-brown painted wood shingle with cream-painted trim. Its roof is clad in asphalt shingle. Its likely that the original details of the roof were removed when the current roof was installed; the only exposed rafters that remain are located on the rear gable projection. The windows throughout the house are one-over-one double hung originals with storm guards set in front of them. An exterior brick chimney is located at the west façade’s gable end.
