This two story two-bay rectangular brick house is the first of the 14 houses at 900 to 922 25th St.. The first six buildings (Nos. 900-910) illustrate how decorative brickwork adds visual interest to modestly-scaled buildings. The houses are two-stories high and two-bays wide. They feature alternating front door placements, and a variety of arches, pediments, and broken pediments above the doors. They feature a corbel motif at the eaves of the brick cornice and molded brick segmental arched six-light grid windows.

The front door has wood pilasters and a semi-circular brick pediment. In 2022, the house was listed as having 2 beds, 1 bath, 1,040 sq. ft .
