The cornice is beautifully detailed and its white paint allows the details to be seen very easily in the natural light. All the windows and front door have well-crafted segmental arches consisting of segmental lintels and a central keystone. The porch cornice is ornamented with a band of dentils with a gently bowed frieze resting on the simple posts with molded caps. Between the posts runs a scroll-sawn balustrade.
