Architectural Style: American Foursquare
This house is an example of the American Foursquare with details drawn from Italian Renaissance architecture and the Arts and Crafts movement. Two and a half stories high and three bays wide, its simple box shape and low hipped roof are typical of the Foursquare. The house is stucco over frame construction, and its overhanging roof is clad in Spanish tile. Hipped dormers feature on the north and south façades, also typical of this style. A classically detailed arched portico frames the front doorway. A one story sun room is located on the south façade. The windows all appear to be original to the house, except for the single-paned casement windows on the sun room. One interior stucco-over-brick chimney is set to the rear of the house. The sun room features a flat roof and exposed rafters.
