Set among mature hardwood trees, this combination L-plan and pyramidal cottage, built around 1905, is one of the best-preserved examples of its type in Durham County. The one-and- a-half-story frame house has a high hip roof with front and side gable-roofed wings, a front porch with original turned posts, two-over-two sash windows with peaked lintels, and corbelled brick interior chimneys. The interior, too, is intact, with medallioned corner block trim, Neoclassical Revival-style mantels with mirrored overmantels, and vertical board wainscoting. The house is said to have belonged to the Thompson family originally.
