    The residence is composed of a main building (three floors) and an auxiliary building (originally two floors). Its form is simple, and the check-patterned wall surface is painted with cement mortar. A corner of the main entrance is built on stilts to form a porch, and the second and third floors are set back to form a terrace. There is no excessive decoration on the facades, basically presenting the modern architectural style. However, the decorative geometric patterns on the columns and the cast-iron railings of the interior stairs reflect the influence of the Art Deco style.
