NR nomination: Two-story late Queen Anne house with interior chimneys, hipped roof and front cross-gable.

In the 1998 survey, this was deemed a Contributing Building.

2015 Survey Update: Now seven apartments, this two-story, hip-roofed house is four bays wide and double-pile with plain weatherboards and nine-over-one wood-sash windows. A projecting, two-story, front-gabled wing on the right (east) end of the façade has partial gable returns and an arched vent in the gable. It has an original one-light-over-two-panel door with three-light-over-one-panel sidelights and a six-light transom and is sheltered by a full-width, hip-roofed porch supported by square columns. The left (west) end of the porch is enclosed with paired windows on the façade. The porch wraps around the right elevation where it has also been enclosed and has an entrance, sheltered by a hipped roof on its rear (north) elevation. There is a two-story, projecting hipped bay on the right elevation, just behind the enclosed porch, and an interior brick chimney. A near-full-width, two-story, single-pile, gabled wing extends from the rear with two-over-two windows and beyond it is a one-story-with-basement, flat-roofed wing that is double-pile with a deck at its roof. Exterior wood stairs on the left elevation access upper-level apartments on the main section as well as the rear additions.
