A low-slung two-story English-Tudor-style home. The frame building features a brick veneer on the first floor and stucco above. Two arched windows with fanlights flank the doorway, which is found in a projecting, gabled porch. At the upper story, half-timbering, in the English manner, exists.

The property once included extensive grounds and a swimming pool. In 1987, the grounds were developed with four new structures designed by Gerald T. O’Buckley. This development is called “Basie Estates.”
