This house combines a variety of cladding materials and Craftsman details in a unique manner that may reflect the original work of a carpenter, although the building permit is not available. It was built in 1908, and has had a succession of owners, including a bridge tender, an architect, an accountant and a furrier. The current family has owned it the longest period, since the 1970s. The house was covered with asbestos shakes in 1958, but these have been removed and the original cladding restored. A small rear addition and deck were constructed in 1990.
 
Appearance
This gable front house has a full-width projecting porch with four columns, two placed together in the center. The openings between are slight pointed, giving the porch increased emphasis. Above is a three-sided hipped-roof bay with four newer six-over-one windows, flanked by two narrow four-over-one windows. The relatively steep gable end has decorative bargeboards and stickwork. Cladding is clapboard on the first floor, wood shingle on the second, and stucco in the gable end.
