A 1920s two-story hip-roofed brick duplex with a short ell on the north side. The two entries are sheltered by gabled porticos decorated with sunburst columns and pilasters.

In late 2007, the owner of 401 Watts St. tore down this duplex to expand his garden.

Since this photo, it has grown a large privacy fence, lest the public enjoy said gardens.
