Symmetrical facade centers on semi-circular plan bay/stair tower with portal at base and topped with a hexagonal roof and finial. Romanseque casement windows on either side of door topped with six-paned fan light. All windows in sets of threes except basement of simple Roman arch. First floor fenestration repeats casement-fanlight treatment with a colonnade of counter-spiraled pilasters.

Third floor bays have pairs of French doors opening onto balconies flanked by smaller windows.

Stylized Italianate eave brackets lead the eye to small windows on 2nd/3rd floors, one with elementally carved limestone surrounds and pilasters.

Door is carved, paneled oak with semicircular leaded overglass with peep windows at eye level. Keystones, sills, brackets and spiral columns rendered in stone. Limestone coping on south corner gate repeats brackets at roofline. The lion finial weather vane atop tower, false hinges on doors and kickplate are hammered copper.
