typical of the Arts & Crafts style. The exterior is defined by an asymmetrical façade, steeply pitched side-gabled roof with shed-roofed attic dormer, off-center front entry porch with upper balcony, massive square front porch columns, and secondary balconies off the side and rear elevations. Additional visual interest is created by a second- story bay-window projection, the incorporation of a variety of window types with contrasting divided light patterns, plus the use of elaborate wood detailing including clapboard siding on the first level, shingle siding on the second level, decorative corbel brackets beneath the roof eaves and delicately “cut-out” porch railings. Originally, the exterior siding was finished with a dark stain.


Some portions of the house, including its floor plan, have been remodeled. Existing historic features on the interior include an impressive open-ceilinged central staircase with wooden railings, two large fireplaces located in the living room and in the original upstairs master bedroom, wood floors, interior wood panel doors with original hardware, and claw foot bathtubs. A new garage and a c.1960s swimming pool now occupy the backyard. The garage was designed and constructed in a style sympathetic to the property’s overall historic character.
