This is a 2-story single-family residence in the Queen Anne style built ca. 1900. The building is irregular in plan. The structural system is frame. Exterior walls are synthetic board siding. The building has a gabled with a turret roof clad in asphalt shingles with deep and one hip-roofed dormer. There is one front slope, brick chimney. Windows are replacement, 1/1 sash. The windows appear to be either vinyl or aluminum in material. It also appears that the siding may have been placed over the historic window frames. There is a single-story, full-span porch characterized by a hip roof with rectangular vinyl-clad posts. The front door is located at the left end of the front façade, within the front porch.
