The Romain Home, located at San Joaquin and Van Ness Streets in downtown Fresno, is a two-story wood-frame residence with a cross-hipped roof. It is approximately 4700 square feet in size plus a partial basement. An attached single-story hip roof porch on the San Joaquin Street facade engages the projecting dining room bay at the westerly end of the structure and turns the corner, extending along the Van Ness Avenue frontage approximately ten feet. The porch is supported by framed columns. A projecting five-sided bay window structure on the southwest corner is one story in height with a shingle roof.
