This simple vernacular shack is located on a lot with two other small historic buildings, directly on the Great South Bay. This house and the others with it are likely original baymen’s shacks.  The house stands one story and has an interior stovepipe. The eave front gable end roof is clad in asphalt shingle. The exterior walls are of wood clapboard. A shallow porch with a sunburst balustrade adorns the north façade. The entrance is on the north façade, facing Brown River Road. There is also a side door on the west façade.
