This two-story Colonial Revival style single-family dwelling is of brick construction with walls laid in Flemish bond. Slate shingles cover the gable roof, flanked by exterior end brick chimneys. The house features an elaborate modillion cornice, 15/15 double-hung wood sash, louvered blinds, and paneled shutters; the principal entrance, centered on the facade, has a classical surround with star-motif applied moldings and a large single-leaf paneled door of wood and glass. Door and window openings are topped by jack arches; those on the facade's first story also have three-part keystones. Flanking one-story wings include a weatherboard-clad frame sunroom with arched multi-pane sash and a service/kitchen wing of materials like those of the main block (Francesi Cook).

Garage/apartment. Between 1925 and 1930 (S). One-and-a-half-story brick garage; faces Fifteenth Street. Beneath the tall gabled roof with a gabled dormer is a small apartment in the half-story.
