Built in the 1920s for Philo Bussell, vice president of Durham Industrial Bank. With a brick facade laid in Flemish bond, this Foursquare is enriched by its hipped roof extending to form wide boxed eaves containing paired curved brackets. One interior and one exterior-end chimney pierce the eaves. A full-facade porch is extended by a terrace on the south; it is adorned with Tuscan columns, turned balusters and paneled piers holding wooden urns which flank the porch entry.
