Built in 1924, the brick home has a Georgian exterior. "From the center of the garden a dogwood allee can be seen falling into wooded ravines, and flanking either end are two charming Chinese Chippendale summerhouses." (Christian and Massie 1962) Two holly retreats are located on each side of the garden. The river facade of the house overlooks two grass terraces.
Persons associated with the property include: Mrs. Benjamin Hodges Smith (former owner); and William Bottomley (landscape designer).
