This house of granite and sandstone cut masonry is elaborate and complex. The roof has a clipped gable end and a cat-slide roof to create a one-and-a-half-story front. A two-story cross gable extends at the back of the house. The buttressed and sandstone arched entrance is at the rear corner under the lower part of the roof’s slope. Three attic dormers face Sinclair Street. Concrete lintels and sills at the front appear to be replacements, but sandstone lintels and sills are retained at the back and sides. Local historians identify this as one of several houses in Bottineau built by stonemasons Ryder and Cox.
