This highly detailed Craftsman house was built in 1912 by Charles E. Stutz, a butcher with a shop at 510 Denny Way. He added a detached garage in 1914. He and his wife Marie lived here until the 1950s, and his widow remained until the 1960s. Later owners were Doug Anderson, a fish biologist, (1970s) and Patricia Foote, an artist at the Seattle Times (1980s). Although the house is basically Craftsman in style, it has elements of earlier styles, including two small Gothic-inspired windows and elaborate leaded glass windows more typically found in a Queen Anne style house. It was in the 1970s city-wide historic resources survey, which noted its leaded glass and random shingles.
This gable front house has deep eaves with very prominent decorative brackets and extended rafters. Cladding is clapboard with staggered square shingles in the gable end. Across the entire width of the house is a deep recessed front porch with a plain balustrade and supported by four square wood piers. Above the porch is a three-sided bay window with a shed roof, extended rafters and three leaded glass windows in a lozenge pattern. Flanking this center bay are two small six-light lancet windows, similar to the Gothic style. Each side elevation has a gabled dormer with three six-over-one double hung windows and decorative extended rafter tails. The south elevation also has a shallow bay on the first floor with three narrow double-hung windows, with leaded transoms. Two second floor windows on the north side have vinyl sash. There is a secondary entry on the north elevation.
