Windows are largely single lights with transoms, some with multiple lights. An overhang with exposed rafter ends and large square posts covers the front entrance. It sits on a fieldstone foundation.

This house is a good example of the Craftsman style. The hip roof with flared eavs, matching dormer, stucco and brick exterior with applied stickwork are all elements of the style. The simple lines of the house with its emphasis on woodworking makes the building a fine exmaple of the style.
