2015 Survey Update: With a combination gabled and hipped roof, this one-and-a-half-story Period Cottage is three bays wide and double-pile. It has a brick veneer, basketweave brick watertable, and four-over-one Craftsman-style wood-sash windows with soldier-course lintels and brick sills, including a single window in the left (north) gable. It has an exterior brick chimney on the left elevation and a front-gabled dormer on the left end of the façade with plain weatherboards and paired three-over-one Craftsman-style wood-sash windows. The four-light-over-three-panel door is sheltered by a projecting, front-gabled porch with a segmental arched opening and brick knee walls on its side elevations. A front-gabled inset porch at the right (south) end of the façade is supported by full-height brick piers, has been enclosed with screens, and has a fixed one-light window in its gable. A near-full-width gabled one-story ell is flush with the right elevation and has a shortened window on its right elevation and a later shed-roofed dormer with fiber cement siding and four-over-one windows. County tax records date the house to 1932.
One-story, front-gabled, frame garage with German-profile weatherboards, a 5V roof, and hinged batten doors. In the 1998 survey, this was deemed a Contributing Building.
