This one-story, side-gabled house is three-bays wide and double-pile with a gabled ell centered on the rear elevation and a flat roofed shed addition to its right. The house has a brick foundation, aluminum siding, and six-over-one, double-hung wood sash windows. It has two interior brick chimneys and an exterior brick chimney on the west elevation. The replacement front door is sheltered by an off-center front-gabled porch supported by wood posts on brick piers; it has a wood floor and a replacement wood railing and is accessed by a carpeted stair with brick knee walls. There are aluminum awnings on the façade. A low concrete retaining wall extends across the front of the lot and along the concrete driveway to the east of the house. The earliest known occupant is Walter G. Rhodes (dry cleaner, Cheek Dry Cleaning Company) in 1940. By 1950, Rhodes had moved to 508 PRICE AVENUE Street and had started his own business.
