The paired, two-story polygonal bays remain from the 1880s house, but the Ionic portico between them was added later. The third floor, also added later, has fenestration, an entablature, and a parapet similar to those of the L. S. Good House ( WH10). The original structure and later alterations blend more harmoniously here than is often the case.
