The upper one has a window box; the sill of the lower one is extended as a belt course on which rests the triple window on that floor east of the entrance, projecting from the cube's east end is a flat-fronted extension reaching as high as the lower belt course on the upper floor. On the opposite end is a tall, thin chimney, the building is listed on the State Survey.
