This one-and-a-half story, side-gabled Minimal Traditional house is three bays wide and triple-pile with a projecting side-gabled ell on the west elevation and a gabled rear ell on the northeast corner. The house has a brick foundation, vinyl siding, two interior brick chimneys, and replacement windows throughout, including in the two gabled front dormers. The replacement six-panel door is sheltered by a front-gabled porch with later shed-roofed “wings” supported by grouped wood posts on brick piers. The house has been altered with the addition of a monitor-roofed dormer on the east end of the roof ridge. The earliest known occupant is Henderson Sampson (bricklayer) in 1945; county tax records confirm a construction date of 1945.
