This is a 2-story cruciform-shaped Arts and Crafts building with a gambrel roof. There is a full 2-story cross-gambrel extending on both the north and south sides of the building along with a small dormer with one window at the northeast and southeast corners. The northern gambrel dormer contains an interesting oriel window. There are craftsman-like brackets at the eaves of the porch and along the dividing line between the first and second floors. The skin of this building is stucco. The porch contains shallow ogival arches. There are also two one-story recessed bays on the south side of the house.

The house was built in 1910. Charles A. and Mary Hobbs resided here from ca. 1912-1930. Charles was a teacher.
