Description – This modest house is clad in aluminum siding, which conceals the original finishes, assumed to be clapboard, but possibly rendered. Low verandah has replacement front posts under original beam with upper dentils and moulding. Original, engaged and chamfered posts with small capitals, remain adjacent house. Front door is old, four-panel door with upper two panels glazed (behind metal storm door). Wooden picture-window, with 1/1 operable sashes either side, probably replaces pair of typical, 1/1 or 2/2 windows. At upper floor are pair of asymmetrically placed, 1/1 wood windows (behind metal storms), with no sign of period trim. Soffits and fascia have plain boards only. Roof is clad in dark-grey, asphalt shingles, and capped stumps of chimneys remain above front and rear gables.
