It is a two-story, Queen Anne-style residence featuring a steeply gabled roof and irregularly shaped windows. The house is made of brick and has a wrap-around porch and a large veranda. The exterior has been restored to its original design.

Inside, the house is filled with period antiques and artwork. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are all decorated in the Victorian style. The walls are painted in muted shades of grey, green, and pink. The furniture is made of mahogany and walnut and is upholstered with velvet and brocade fabrics.
