    Significance: Fine example of a common type with a steeply pitched roof enclosing the second floor, deep porch occupying the east half of the front; on the west half the roof is broken into by a hipped-roofed extension for the second story where irregular shingles surround a tripartite window. Its outer openings are double-hung windows; the central one, slightly wider, has in place of a lower sash a field with moulded acanthus swirl; below that window group in the the thin-clapboard clad ground floor is another of equal width, this one with a pair of double-hung windows below an art glass transom; below the cornice extending across the top of the entire ground floor and below the one on the second story is a moulding of enlarged reels; toward the back on the west side is a slight flat-fronted projection.

    Historic Features: Square tower on west elevation; shed dormer on north elevation; gable dormer on west elevation; porch with columns.

    Alterations: Shingles appear to be vinyl replacements.
