This one-story, side-gabled, Minimal Traditional-style house is three bays wide and double-pile with a wide, gabled rear ell. It has a brick veneer, flush eaves, interior brick chimney, and vinyl windows. The house has a replacement door centered on the façade that is sheltered by a wide, front-gabled porch supported by square posts with vertical wood sheathing in the front gable. There are paired windows in the gables with triangular louvered vents at the roofline. The house is located on a slight rise with a stone wall at the front of the property and stone steps leading up toward the house. The earliest known occupants are Thomas A. Hamme, County Colored Farm Agent, and his wife, Lillian Q. Hamme, in 1940.

Mr. and Mrs. Hamme lived in the residence for approximately five years.  After that time, the property was rental property.  On December 2004, Latosha T. Boggan became the new owner, according to deed records.  She lived in the house for one year before making it a rental investment property.  Ms. Boggan sold the house on August 12, 2019 to Smivera Builders LLC.  The property is unoccupied currently and is being remodeled.
