Built in the Queen Anne style, this 2 ½ story house is similar in form, massing, and roof to the neighboring Bennett-McBride house at 3116 3rd Ave So.

There is a second story balcony on the main façade, under a steeply pitched intersecting gabled roof. On the southern façade there is a two-story bow window.

The northern façade features a bay window set under a projecting gable. The house retains numerous ornate stained glass windows.

The house has been altered with asbestos siding, porch alterations and removal of detailing.

The building permit listed Healy as the owner and the estimated cost of construction as $6,000.

In addition to the houses themselves, the Healy Block Residential Historic District contains several intact examples of turn of the century urban residential outbuildings.

The district contains six circa 1915 – 1925 garages, all of which are basically intact. One of these structures, a one story hipped roof, circa 1920 garage, is set at the back of the Babbidge house; the other garages contributing to the district are located on the back of lots of houses at 3101 2nd Ave So , 3112 2nd Ave So, 3119 2nd Ave So, 3129 2nd Ave So, and 3124 3rd Ave So.
