Charming one-and-half-story frame bungalow that appears to be a "builder's house." The engaged gable- front porch with heavy carved brackets in the eaves and a lattice-paned gable window with a decorative sawn surround and bracketed hood dominates the design. Samuel Hobgood, who lived next door in the Kuker-Hobgood House at 710 Morehead Ave., built this house for his daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Cooke, upon their marriage in the late 1920s.
