This is an American Foursquare design with a combination of Queen Anne detailing at the openings and Craftsman detailing (exposed rafter tails and extensive overhangs) at the eaves. The massive piers at the inset porch and the horizontal emphasis are indicative of early twentieth century design sensibilities drawn from Craftsman and Prairie style work.

The entry stairs appear to have been altered.
