This is a one story, clapboard clad, wood frame single-family residence on a half concrete, half post and beam foundation, over a half basement. The porch appears to be built on a post and beam foundation.The rectangular plan is capped by a hip roof with moderate overhangs and enclosed soffits.

The windows and doors are characterized by patterns and details customarily associated with the Craftsman style and other early 20th century bunglow styles. The roof form, roof slope and eave details are more typical of Queen Anne design.

This house was built in 1901.

A skylight has been added to the front porch. The original clapboard siding was replaced or covered with cement/asbestos shakes in the 1950s; however, the structure has since been returned to its former appearance. Railings have been added to the front steps.
