The two-story, red tile, hipped-roof residence is a late work of the Alfred Giles Company of San Antonio. Built for local dry goods merchant T. A. Cheeves, the buff brick building includes a full-height, central portico with Ionic columns. A one-story gallery of Tuscan columns slides behind the tall columns and wraps around the side of the house, also forming the porte-cochere. Architect Birch D. Easterwood made alterations to the house after World War II that included a rear enclosure.
