This one-story, front-gabled house is three bays wide and triple-pile with an enclosed shed-roofed rear porch on the southeast corner. The house has a painted brick foundation, original molded weatherboards, an interior brick chimney, and an exterior brick chimney on the façade. Synthetic shingle siding covers parts of the left front corner. The house retains six-over-six, double-hung wood sash windows and a rectangular vent in the front gable. The replacement front door is sheltered by a small gabled roof on metal braces. There are aluminum awnings over the windows on the façade. The concrete stoop abuts a two-tier brick planter that is attached to the chimney. The earliest known occupant is Joseph Simms (laborer, Liggett & Myers) in 1945.
