The main residence and 3-car carriage house feature whimsical multi-gabled rooflines accented with half-timbering on the projecting gables. A large chimney on the East side of the home has a corbelled top.

The East facade's original wooden porch was replaced at some point in the past with the current arcaded porch.

The driveway to the right side of the residence leads to a circular drive graced by a giant shade tree. The carriage house offers an apartment with living room, kitchen, dining room,bedroom and bath upstairs and a sitting room on the first floor.
