    Significance: Good example of the typical work of an architect active in Evanston; this frame, stuccoed structure has a central, two-story pitched roof core with bracketed gable rafters which establishes the form and basic massing; the western third of the front is brought forward and given its own gable; it has a pair of windows on the second floor and three grouped into the same breadth below, here, as elsewhere, double-hung with multi-light upper sash; the rest of the front is occupied by a porch whose gable parallels the lines of the others; it is set sufficiently forward of the other projection to allow its western rafter to extend across the projection's face; its parapet has a coping in line with the board that crosses the facades at the level of the ground floor windows' sills, a device repeated on the second floor.

    Historic Features: Stucco cladding; bay with shed roof on east elevation; chimney stack on west elevation.
