The Mrs David Roberts residence is a 6-bedroom, 3-bath, 4,000 square-foot wood frame house at 4301 Altamont Road, accessed from Altamont Alley. It was built for Mrs David Roberts between 1910 and 1912, and was designed by architect William Leslie Welton.

The two-story house is clad with wood board siding to the second floor window sills, with stucco above. The roof is a simple terra-cotta gable, with the ridge running unbroken from side to side. The front eave is interrupted by broken-plate dormers at either end and there are two smaller attic dormers in between. The overhanging gable ends are supported on carved brackets.

The house has since been owned by Robert Jemison Jr, Karl Landgrebe, Cecil Hackney, and Claude Boykin.
