This is a good example of a Craftsman bungalow with distinctive ornamental woodwork on the front gable. No original building permit has been located, but it was probably built from a pattern book design; a similar house, somewhat altered, is found nearby at 2207 4th Avenue North. The original owner of this house is not known, but it was purchased in 1937 by Mrs. Nora Sias, who shared the house with Ina Tate, a dressmaker. Miss Tate became the owner in 1943 and remained here until the 1960s.
The gable front bungalow has prominent brackets, stickwork in the gable end and pointed bargeboards. Three belt courses run across the gable end. Between the two upper courses is a pair of 15-light windows. Between the two courses just below is a row of distinctive I-shaped wood trim, about two feet in height. Cladding is clapboard with stucco in the gable end. The recessed porch has two square wood columns sitting on wood piers. The wood stairs with a plain balustrade were replaced in 1991. The front door has a wide wood surround with ears, and is flanked by two large 30-over-1 windows with wide surrounds. The south elevation has a square hanging bay toward the rear, past the exterior brick chimney. The garage, below on the north side, appears to have the original board-and-batten six-light doors; its construction date is not known, but it pre-dates 1937.
