This house has the irregular massing, converging rooflines, multiple porches and cutaway bay characteristic of the Queen Anne style but its surfaces are relatively plain and ornament is limited to classical porch columns, decorative windows and wooden shingles in the gables. The roof is a steeply pitched hip with gable and shed projections.
