Built in 1926 by architect Everett P. Babcock as his personal residence, the two-story house retains much of its original character. The entry opens to a foyer and a tower staircase with Batchelder tile risers. Features include arched doorways, a formal dining room, a butler's pantry, dormer windows and fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom. There are four bedrooms and four bathrooms in about 4,690 square feet of living space.
Mature landscaping surrounds an oval-shaped saltwater swimming pool on the nearly half-acre site. Across the lawn off the back veranda is a koi pond.
