Two-story weatherboarded house. Gable roof has plain boxed cornice and pedimented gable ends; slope of the roof faces Carolina Avenue. Chimneys are brick and have corbeled caps; one interior chimney on S. end of the front slope of the roof, one straddle-ridge chimney at the northern end of the roof, one straddle-ridge chimney on the rear ell. Front (E. elevation): facade is symmetrical; first floor, ABA - A’s are tripartite windows (each window has an upper sash with muntins arranged in a decorative geometric pattern, and a single-light lower sash), and B is an entrance with single glazed door framed by rectangular transom and sidelights (transom and sidelights have geometric designs similar to the upper sashes of the first floor windows); second floor, AABAA - A's are 1/1 windows which appear to be not original, B is a doorway with single glass and wood panel door framed by rectangular 4-light transom and 2-pane sidelights; center gable on front slope of roof contains a tripartite window, smaller but similar in design to the first floor front windows; this gable has fishscale shingle siding except at the peak, where there is a decorative 3-lobed design. Across the front and wrapping around the SE corner is a porch with low hipped roof supported by square wooden posts. North elevation: 4 windows on both the first and second floors (present windows are not original, but window openings appear to be); two attic windows in gable end have been boarded up; gable end has fishscale shingle siding, except for a diamond-shaped area in the center, which features diamond-shaped shingles. South elevation: original windows on this side of the house have been replaced with 1/1 metal frame windows. In the center of this elevation is a two-story polygonal bay, which has a pedimented gable roof (with fishscale shingles in gable end a window that has been boarded up); this two-story bay is at the western end of the rectangular core of the house; to the west of the polygonal bay is a two-story ell; basement windows have been boarded up. Rear: Two-story ell has two windows on each floor on its west side (1/1 metal-frame windows); pedimented gable end with fishscale shingle siding, diamond-shaped area with diamond-shaped shingles in middle. North of the two-story ell is a one-story enclosed area that might once have been a porch - it features a tall brick chimney (partially stuccoed) and a triple window. To the north of this one-story section is a screened porch, which appears to be an addition (foundation and other details are different). OUTBUILDINGS: Old weatherboarded garage behind the house.
