This rare survivor of Huntington's early days presides over a large yard, and its generous setback established the pattern for other houses in the block. The design encompasses myriad architectural references. Of frame construction with flush siding, it is fronted with a two-story porch with Eastlake trim. Prominent acroteria decorating the roof are unexpected Greek flourishes, but the broad overhanging eaves give the impression of a Victorian version of a Swiss chalet. To the rear, adding to the idiosyncrasy, is a slightly later, mansard-roofed ell. A railroad attorney who was a friend of Collis P. Huntington built the house.
