This one story house is an interesting example of a Folk house with an Arts and Crafts influence. It has elements of the Arts and Crafts style, such as a bungalow shape created by its eave front gable end roof and integrated porch. Yet its simple shape and spindle porch posts with flat-sawn brackets speak to the Folk style. Its integrated porch has been partially enclosed. The house is constructed of wood frame and clad in red asbestos shingle. The windows throughout the house are one-over-one double hung replacements and are framed by white painted trim. Two exterior brick chimneys are located on the north and south façades.
