The house is clad in grey-painted wood clapboard with white-painted trim, and asphalt shingle roofing. Wide fascia trim with a neo-classical profile features prominently at the eaves. The windows feature delicate hood moldings. The windows throughout the house are original. Two-over-two double hung windows feature on the first floor, six-over-six windows on the second.
