This one-story, hip-roofed house is three bays wide and double-pile with a hip-roofed front dormer. The house has a brick pier foundation with a concrete-block curtain wall, original wood weatherboards, and two interior brick chimneys. It retains four-over-one, double-hung, Craftsman-style wood sash windows throughout; a small window in the dormer has been removed. The front door is a modern replacement and is sheltered by a replacement shed-roofed porch on decorative metal posts with a concrete slab floor. The earliest known occupant is Mary C. Evans (domestic) in 1925. When Evans died in 1958, the property was sold to the Durham Colored Library.
