This one-story, side-gabled Minimal Traditional house is three bays wide and triple-pile with a gabled rear ell on the northeast corner and a shed-roofed block west of the ell. The house has a brick foundation, wood siding, two interior brick chimneys, and an exterior chimney on the rear ell. The house retains an original six-light-over-two-panel wood door, six-over-six, double-hung wood sash windows throughout, and louvered vent in the gables. The front-gabled porch is supported by square columns and has arched spans and a louvered vent in the gable. A low stone wall extends across the front of the property. County tax records date the building to 1939; the earliest known occupant is Pratha Edwards (tobacco worker) in 1940.
