This two-and-a-half story turn of the century folk house is porch fronted and has a hipped roof. The house also has elements reminiscent of the Eastlake style, such as wide overhanging eaves and carved eave boards. The house is clad in blue-painted wood clapboard and trimmed with white painted fascia, corner boards, and window and door mouldings. The roof is clad in asphalt shingle. The windows throughout the house are one-over-two and one-over-one double hung replacements. The porch is supported by white-painted square posts. The posts are topped with circular brackets that echo the carving in the eave boards. The interior brick chimney is located on the north façade.
