The front elevation has two-over-two lights on the first floor and a transom window over front door. Other details include small circular attic vents in the side gables and a front porch added later. The roof is covered in ribbed metal. Foundation material is rubble limestone.

James W. Weldon was listed as the owner of record in 1877. W.T. Fields acquired the property by 1884.
