Summary for 1315 E MARION ST E / Parcel ID 2254500990 / Inv # 0

Historic Name: Common Name:
Style: Arts & Crafts - Craftsman, Queen Anne - Free Classic Neighborhood: First Hill
Built By: Year Built: 1903
This is a simple example of bungalow design with a mix of early Craftsman and late Queen Anne detailing. The addition of several dormers has significantly compromised the structure's design integrity, although the street facade retains its original character.

This is one of approximately 2,200 houses that are still extant out of more than 5,000 that were built by the end of 1906 in Seattle’s Central Area, Eastlake, First Hill, Leschi, Madison Park, Madrona, and North Capitol Hill neighborhoods.

A complete permit history, and a complete record of ownership and occupation have not yet been prepared for this property; however, Emily Yaworski appears to have owned the house from about 1919 until at least 1937.

King County Property Record Card (c. 1938-1972) Washington State Archives

This is a one-and-a-half story, clapboard and vertical board siding clad, wood frame single-family residence on a concrete foundation, over a full basement. The King County Property Record Card suggests that at lest one of the porches appears to be built on a post and beam foundation.

The rectangular plan is capped by a hip roof with moderate overhangs, open soffits, and exposed rafter tails. The steep roof and porch detailing suggest a cottage version of Queen Anne - Free Classic design; the exposed rafter tails and bungalow form suggest early Craftsman work.

The roof has been altered with the addition of dormers at the east and west elevations.
