The house is in the Southern Colonial Style and is built of 6:1 English bond bricks that, according to tradition, were made on the property.  The overall plan of the house is gable-ell.  The main part is two stories high and has a standing seam tin roof. The one-story wing has a gable standing seam tin roof. The main part of the house has a central hall with one room on either side. The western room opens into the one-story, two-room ell. 

Each room is 18' X 18,' with 10' ceilings.  All of the ceilings are finished with tongue-in-groove boards.  Except for the kitchen, all rooms have a fireplace with a wooden surround and mantle.  There is no basement; the house is built on wooden supports and is approximately 2' off the ground. 

As shown in the old photos on the right, which were taken in 1935, the stone wall around the property was in place, and the decorative brackets under the eaves were present.  The massive boxwoods in the rear garden, however, had not been planted, and the rear porch had not been modified to accommodate a bathroom on the first floor.
