On the west side of 25th St. (Nos. 822-828) are four relatively plain individual buildings with varying roof heights and greater depth than the houses across the street. No. 822 is a detached, two and a half stories high and three bays wide brick house. It was built in 1878 for P. Hough, in an Italianate style. It has a raised first floor with a brick water table. The windows have angular chipstone bracketed lintels. The yard has an iron fence. The wood cornice is bracketed and dentiled, with a projecting eave.
The house is notable for its depth, with rows of eight windows along what appears to be a rear addition, which also has a separate entrance.
