-The Dakin House is an approximately 5,000 square foot former private residence. The English Cottage Style house has a Cshaped plan including one 2-story block, and two 1-story wings that form an entrance courtyard. The main block is approximately 5 bays wide by 2 bays deep with a gable roof. The wings are perpendicular to the main block and each 1 bay wide but vary in length and width. Both their gables intersect the east slope of main block gable. Between the two wings is a large brick chimney. +The Dakin House is an approximately 5,000 square foot former private residence.

Two building entrances occur at the east elevation. One is at the south wing and has a small gabled porch. The second entrance is a small vestibule that projects into the courtyard from the intersection of the main block and north wing. Both entrances have single wood doors with glazed upper panels.
