A picturesque house of modest, almost rustic quality forming an important element of the urban vernacular heritage of Johnstown and the environs. Despite alterations to the context of the site, including the removal of the adjacent ranges, the house continues to present an early aspect with substantial quantities of the historic fabric surviving in place, thereby making a pleasing impression on the character of the locality.
