Three-story brick building with a gabled wall dormer. The second floor is distinguished by steeped arches over Chicago windows. The third floor has flat topped one-over-one windows with heavy lintels and a running sill course. The upper floor wall dormer is broken by a Palladian window with a stone lintel that fans into a sunburst of voussoirs above the center arched window. The wall dormer is outlined by a stone running sill and stone rake. Flanking the rake are stone squares set in a triangle pattern.
