This house exhibits an L-shaped fusion of Georgian-style and Gothic Revival sections. The original brick Georgian part, with its substantial double-pile, center-passage plan, is a rare survival in the county. Paneling was once marbelized but stripped to natural wood by twentieth-century owners. An early-nineteenth-century barn is notable. Pioneering Massachusetts Institute of Technology chemical engineer Warren K. Lewis (b. 1882) grew up here.
