Built for a local merchant, this is Front Royal's finest example of Italianate. The large two-story brick house is encircled by a heavy bracketed wooden cornice above small rectangular attic frieze windows. A three-bay front porch with chamfered wooden columns extends across the front, shading floor-to-ceiling double-sash windows and a segmental-arched central entrance. Segmental-arched windows with louvered shutters are on the second story and a one-story bay window with a bracketed cornice projects from the north side elevation. Now accommodating offices, the building nevertheless retains much of its original interior and exterior character.
