Two-story gambrel-roofed house placed perpendicular to the street so that main entrance, with single-bay porch on Tuscan columns, is on side elevation. Brick-veneered with slate-covered roof, frame full-facade dormers, and one-story porch on large brick piers across gambrel end facing street. A two-story frame wing is on north end. Earliest known occupant was Rorer V. Cooke, manager of Cease Lunch System, beginning late 1920s. Directory listings indicate that the house also contained an apartment, probably in the frame wing.
