This one-story, hip-roof Ranch-style house is of solid masonry construction, with stuccoed walls and wide soffits.  A patio has been added at the front northwest corner, with thin metal poles holding up a cloth awning over a wood deck.  There is one interior brick chimney and windows are one-over-one and picture.  The house sits on a hill above the street, on a corner lot.  Flat granite stones are placed into the hillside, as at 903 and 904 Highland Avenue.  An inscription on the building dated August 15, 1953 notes that Nicholas W. Lefeber built the house.  Lefeber was the manager of Flower Express Company.  At one time, there was a bomb shelter on the south side of the house which was built into the hillside (Sanborn maps; city directories; owner information; inscription on house)
