Significance
In the opinion of the survey, this property is located in a potential historic districe (National and/or local).

Based on field work conducted in October 2014, this historic property retains its relationship to the streetscape, historic building form and a sufficient amount of exterior historic building fabric (design features, cladding and/or window sash/openings) to contribute to the distinct character of the University Park neighborhood.This is a particularly well-preserved historic property that appears to possess architectural and/or historic significance.

(2002) This one-story Craftsman bungalow is a good example of its type in the Thompson's Addition/University Park neighborhood north of the University of Washington campus. Its builder and original owner was William Bruggerhoffer. Ward E. Kimm purchased the house in 1927 and lived here until at least 1948. Later residents included Myrtle Collins, William Taber, Robert Ward. Teresa Valois has lived here since about 1987. The house has many typical Craftsman features including the cross-gable roof, the low-angled roof, shingle siding, prominent porch, multi-paned wood windows, and wide overhanging eaves.
 
Appearance

This property exhibits no substantive changes to the exterior appearance since it was identified in the 2002 HRI project. 

(2002) This is a typical Craftsman bungalow with a cross-gable roof, shingle cladding, and attractive multi-paned windows. The garage, which is located on the alley, has recently been rebuilt. The house has wood double-hung windows, with multipaned wood sash on the upper pane. There is a small new shed in the yard and deck that is not connected to the house. The lot is nicely landscaped. The house is relatively intact; there is a possible small addition on the west elevation, but it is older. There is an exterior chimney on the east elevation. Although a 1998 building permit indicates a second story addition, there is no evidence of this addition from the exterior. The concrete porch was damaged during the Nisqually earthquake in 2001 and has recently been replaced.
