This two-story house was built between 1850s, in the late Neoclassical style.

In the early 20th century reconstruction, a new street facade was added that bears the features of the Art-nouveau style.

The house has a U-shaped floor-plan, with two yard-wings, and a gateway in the middle, but more to the right.
