The building is a two story, 1895 square foot, four bedroom, one bathroom, one half-bathroom, frame house, with a detached garage.

The Italianate Style evolved from the romantic notion of the northern Italian houses and landscapes depicted in late eighteenth-century paintings. This style strongly influenced the architecture of the commercial storefront of the late nineteenth century. The Italianate houses of Saint Paul are usually two stories high, square or rectangular in plan, supporting a low-pitched hip, gabled, or shed roof. They are constructed of local stone, brick or wood frame with wood ornamentation. The style was fashionable in Minnesota from the 1850s to the 1880s.
