Statement of significance: 
This house seems to be a combination of the Queen Anne and Shingle Styles, having definite elements of each. The general form of the house with its side gabled roof, hipped dormer and porch under the main roof is most common in the Shingle period. Also the window proportions are wider than normally found in the Queen Anne style and there is no eave overhang on the gable ends. The Classical porch columns, with their wide frieze band, and the modillions, or brackets, at the front and dormer eaves are features more typical to the Queen Anne Free Classical style.
