Executed in the Queen Anne style, this 1910 asymmetrical two-story frame residence is distinguished by a right, lower fašade and a left polygonal, tent roofed turret above a front and left side, wraparound, lower porch. The hipped porch is supported by paired Tuscan colonettes resting on brick pedestals. Molded window caps surmount all sash, which are one-over-one throughout, except for a tripartite tracery window grouping below the pedimented central cross gable. The gabled roof is sheet metal shingles. The house faces a circular drive and is set amid landscaped foundation and side yard plantings. The building has been altered by the application of aluminum siding. This house is one of two Queen Anne residences constructed in Batesburg during the early twentieth century. Its builder, J.B. Holman, was a prominent Batesburg businessman. Listed in the National Register July 6, 1982.
