This structure is an eclectic mix of Queen Anne details applied to a foursquare scheme.

The single story extension at the back end of the house (apparently an original element) has been altered. The porch posts and railings have been replaced, in each case with elements of simpler design. The railing at the deck over the entry porch has also been replaced.
