Its crossgable roof is interrupted by a tower that rises through the center of the house and is capped by a steeply pitched roof. The house’s fascia trim is painted blue, and features eave brackets on the tower. The door and window surrounds are also painted blue. A bay window projects from the front of the first floor, as well as a porch. The porch’s original decorative elements are intact, such as its spindle posts, spandrels, turned balusters. The house’s front door is tucked beneath the porch. The windows throughout the house are one-over-one double hung replacements, except for the pair of windows at the top of the tower, which are sixteen-over-one originals. An interior brick chimney rises along side the tower on the northern side of the house.
According to its tax assessment card, this house was built circa 1900 and is now a multi-family home.
