One-and-one-half-story c. 1920 bungalow with shed-roofed front dormer and gabled roofline splayed to engage the full- facade porch. Sheathing of alternating rows of short and tall split-shake shingles and elephantine tapered brick piers at each end of the porch distinguish the house. Owned for investment at one time by Cobb family, who built the Cobb House next door at 814 Vickers Ave.
