This pyramidal-roofed house with a gable over the front entrance retains its original form. The house is three bays wide and double-pile. A one-story, hip-roofed block extends from the right (north) rear of the house with a small, shed-roofed block within the ell (likely an enclosed porch). The house rests on a brick pier and curtain foundation and has two tall, interior corbelled brick chimneys. The house has been wrapped with vinyl siding and has replacement wrought-iron posts supporting a hip-roofed front porch. Windows have two-over-two wood sashes. Tax records indicate construction in 1920 and early occupants include U. H. Parker in 1924, Jesse S. Oakley in 1934, and Arthur W. Garrett in 1939.
