A Queen Anne window with a colorful border of red and blue glass squares is a lively token of fashion on the entry door of the substantial frame tri-gable I-house built by John Thomas Couch ca. 1900. Set well back from the road on 17.5 acres of the original 130-acre farm, the house has the six-over-six sash windows, rear brick chimneys, full-length front porch with chamfered posts, and one-story rear ell that are found on many turn-of-the-twentieth-century Durham County farmhouses. Two generations of the Couch family have kept the house in excellent condition; the only major exterior change has been the addition of aluminum siding. The interior center hall floor plan is intact, and the original staircase, mantels, and several doors are in place. Behind the house there are several small barns and sheds from the 1920s and 1930s and a potato house from the 1940s.
