Like many houses built in Chesterfield, it has a “hall and parlor” plan and a symmetrical façade with a central door flanked on each side by a tall window. Like the Perkins Cabin, it has a large double window on the side of the main room giving it a pleasant and bright appearance. There is an added bit of elegance in the window frames with round medallions at the corners and sides on the interior, and peaked lintels reminiscent of the Greek Revival style on the exterior. The interior walls are plastered and the exterior walls are covered with wood siding. The house was picturesquely situated in the shade of several large trees. The property also includes the ruins of a log barn and has a wood privy.
