A single-story house in the Neo-Baroque style, formed by merging two houses, with the facade likely designed in the first decade of the 20th century.

The left part, with a shop and a small apartment consisting of a room and kitchen on the ground floor, and a three-room apartment on the upper floor, was built in 1858 for Anka Obrenović, based on a design by Georg Molnar. It was simultaneously recorded that the rooms were connected to the upper floor of the neighboring house on the right side (number 1413 on Sauter’s plan). This house was likely owned by Jovan Obrenović (1786-1850), brother of Prince Miloš.

On the upper floor of the facade, there are six windows, while on the ground floor, out of four windows, two have now been converted into shop openings. At the right corner is a wide segmental entrance with a decorated keystone and paneled wings.

The wall surface of the lower zone of the facade is treated with grooves imitating stone blocks, above the openings are profiled rectangular fields and decorative keystones.

Around the upper floor windows is Neo-Baroque ornamentation, with shells and foliage on the parapets, and architrave pediments above. The attic parapet is very low and without openings, with a pronounced eave above it.

The wide passage is shallowly barrel-vaulted, with three paneled fields featuring floral metopes.

At the end of the hallway to the left is an entrance leading to a three-flight staircase with wrought iron bar doors.

The staircase has wooden steps, small landings, and a railing made of latticed wooden balusters.

The segmental arch from the level of the landings is supported by two massive columns with cut corners, and in this area are two smaller semicircular niches on the walls. Next to the staircase entrance on the right side is another tall narrow basement door with heavy wrought iron bar wings. The basement, with a barrel vault, is accessed by a steep stair flight.

Due to the merging of the two houses, the courtyard wing is positioned in the middle of the courtyard facade.

The communication balcony with vaults on tongue-shaped consoles, covered with stone slabs and a wrought iron railing, belongs to the older right half of the house.

In her narrow yard, there was old cobblestone, but it was replaced with concrete paving stones.
