The symmetrical facade, classical portico, and Palladian window make the Harris House an elegant example of the Colonial Revival, inflected by a Dutch Colonial gambrel roof. The ample house sits in the center of its equally ample lot, with a frontage of 100 feet, a depth of 147.5 feet, and a carriage house (garage) tucked away in back to the right.
