A rectangular brick farmhouse with a threebay facade, Fairview attains architectural distinction through its finely proportioned Ionic portico, a pediment containing a lunette that lights the attic, and a square monitor atop the shallow hipped roof. A rear ell, along with the two-tiered rear porches, was likely added soon after the original construction. The National Register nomination form appropriately characterizes the house as “comfortably elaborate.” A number of farm buildings, some of which predate the house, form a picturesque ensemble.
