This one-and-a-half story, side-gabled Craftsman house is three-bays wide and double pile with a shed-roofed rear ell on the right side. The house has clipped gables with knee braces and two shed-roofed dormers, likely added later, on the fac╠žade. The modern, hollow-care front door is sheltered by a gabled roof supported by large knee braces and a side door on the left side is sheltered by a low gable supported by knee braces. The house is covered with painted wood shingles and the dormers have painted wood weatherboards. The windows are one-over-one replacement windows throughout. The earliest known resident of the house is John R. Barry (editor, Durham Sun newspaper) in 1925.
