Statement of significance: 
This house and site is immaculately maintained and is an excellent example of the Craftsman Bungalow style. Rafter ends are exposed on the rake overhangs. The windows typically consist of a single lower pane and four narrow vertical upper panes. The front porch is included under the principal roof of the house and is supported by grouped square posts resting on massive stuccoed piers. A low railing spans between the piers which continue to the ground. The large shed roofed dormer facing the front of the house has a band of four multi-pane double-hung windows across its face. A simulated balcony railing and corner posts repeat the main porch elements in a smaller scale.
