The house has red brick cladding and a hipped roof with deep boxed eaves with shaped brackets. There are entries on the north and south elevations, but not on the street (east) side. The south has a wide bay with a bank of windows on each floor with French doors in the east end; above these doors is a round-arched window with leaded glass.

An unusually wide brick chimney is near the center of the east façade.
