The William L. Dysinger house is an unusual two-story wooden frame building constructed to look like a brick building. The exterior of this Mission Style house is simulated brick made of two-by-fours with regularly spaced grooves and painted white. The rectangular-shaped house is three bays wide and has very wide projecting eaves supported by four-by-four beams. The north (front) facade is symmetrical with broad two-over-one windows. Flat arches with a keystone accentuate upper and lower windows. A very large porch extends across the north elevation. The main entrance is surrounded by natural wood panels and moldings. The porch roof is supported by large square posts with caps. The house has a nearly flat roof; a basement garage is under the kitchen wing on the south elevation, and another garage, also in simulated brick, is in the alley behind the house. There are two internal chimneys with caps. A cement retaining wall with corner posts and caps surrounds the yard.
