This one-story, hip-roofed house is four bays wide and triple-pile with a shed-roofed rear ell. It has a concrete-block foundation, wide weatherboard siding, vinyl windows, an interior brick chimney, and wide wood eaves and soffits. The site slopes to the rear to reveal an exposed basement with casement windows. A projecting, hip-roofed entrance bay is centered on the façade with a replacement front door. The flat-roofed front porch has decorative metal porch supports and railings, aluminum awnings, and a brick stair. County tax records date the building to 1950; the earliest known occupant is William M. Forte (laborer) in 1955. As of 2012, it is still occupied by Minnie E Forte.
