From the National Register Historic District description:

 

Modern details on this one-story, hip-roofed Ranch include a low-pitched roof with deep eaves and stacked, metal-framed awning windows. The house is three bays wide with a projecting, hip- roofed entrance bay centered on the façade. The solid wood door with three horizontal lights is accessed by an uncovered brick terrace with a decorative metal railing that extends across the right (east) two bays of the façade. Windows on the façade are paired, awning windows, each four sashes high. There is a gabled ell at the right rear (northeast) with a prowed eave that extends above the main roofline. A gabled wing projects from the left (west) side of the rear ell and there is an interior brick chimney near the intersection of these wings. A gabled screened porch projects from the right elevation of the rear ell, supported by square posts with vinyl siding in the gable. A concrete block wall extends across the front of the property and there is a prefabricated metal shed behind the house. The earliest known occupant is W. M. Gilliam, an administrative assistant at NC Mutual Life Insurance Company, in 1962.
