This one-story, hip-roofed duplex is four bays wide and triple-pile with two shed-roofed porches on the rear elevation, the northern-most one of which has been enclosed. The house has a brick foundation, molded wood weatherboards, and a pair of low gables on the façade. It retains original two-over-two, double-hung wood sash windows, six-panel wood doors, and exposed rafter tails. The engaged front porch is supported by tapered posts on brick piers with granite caps and a replacement wood railing. The porch is accessed by a brick stair with concrete-capped brick knee walls. The earliest known occupant is Edna Barbee (tobacco worker) in 1940.
