The two-and-a-half-story entrance tower of this French Second Empire house has an unusual vertical diamond window that plunges into the mansard roof. To the right is a lower bay tower with a curved segmented roof and small oval dormer windows. The wood shingle pattern and the ironwork on the cross of the tower are still in place. Later modifications and additions have been made to the house, but its picturesque roofscape remains.
