The residence has a side-gabled roof with two front-facing, slightly projecting cross gables.

The majority of fenestration is either 6/1 or 4/1 double-hung sash. There are two tripartite arrangements on the first story of the facade and round multi-pane windows in the front-facing gable ends. Two quarter-round windows flank the chimney on the gable end of the south (side) elevation. There is a partial-width, recessed porch on the west (front) elevation and a two story porch with hipped roof and paired doric supports on the rear (east) elevation. The garage has a front-facing pitched roof and is faced with stucco. The doors are wood paneled with multi-pane windows in their upper halves. Nine drawings are included in the set; north, south, east, and west elevations; garage elevations and floor plans; as well as attic and roof, cellar, first floor, and second floor plans. Cellar plans include unexcavated areas, coal rooms, and storage spaces. The first floor plan identifies the veranda, dining and living rooms, hall, kitchen, pantries, closets, rear porches, and toilet. The second floor plan includes four chambers, closets, two bathrooms, hall, two stairwells, and a sleeping porch. The attic and roof plan contains three chambers, a bathroom, and several storage areas.
