The original design and materials of this carriage house are remarkably intact. Two-stories high and four bays wide, the house retains its original wood clapboard siding, bracketed cornice, fascia trim, and window and door surrounds. Likewise, the six-over-one double hung windows and paneled carriage doors with 6-paned fixed windows remain. The house has a flat roof and is elegant in its simple square massing. The house is now used as a rental property. It first appears on a 1915 historic map of Patchogue, on a lot owned by C.L. Zerweck. (This lot was previously owned by C. Smith according to an 1872 map, and by the Estate of Mrs. Keech according to an 1888 map.)
