The somewhat complex and somewhat steep roof, the cutaway bay at the front-facing elevation, and the enclosed soffits are all typical of late Queen Anne houses, and the extensive use of shingle siding is suggestive of the Shingle style. The ganged windows anticipate early twentieth century design approaches.

This house appears to have been built in 1900.

Storm windows have been added at some window openings.
