Two-story side-gabled Tudor Revival house with brick, stone, and stucco exterior; wood casement

windows; slightly projecting centered front-gabled entry wing and slightly shorter recessed two-story

side-gabled wing at north end; slate roof; shed-roof dormers; compatible addition made at side and rear

side wing, using similar and complementary materials. City directories and deeds show that Clinton

and Annie Toms moved from Hermitage Circle in Forest Hills to this house between 1928 and 1931;

Toms was the president of the Venable Tobacco Company. From the mid-1940s through the end of the

period of significance, Commodore and Bettie Council lived here. Commodore T. Council Sr. was one

of the formulators of the BC Remedy, a headache powder invented and manufactured in Durham

through the 1960s.
