A complete permit history, and a complete record of ownership and occupation have not yet been prepared for this property.

This is a two story, concrete/asbestos shingle and vertical board siding (or T1-11) clad, wood frame single-family residence on a concrete foundation, over a partial basement.

The irregular but essentially rectangular plan is capped by a complicated hip and gable roof with moderate overhangs and enclosed soffits. A nearly conical hipped roof surmounts the tower at the north west corner of the structure

The wall surfaces, windows and doors are characterized by patterns and details customarily associated with the Queen Anne style.

This house was built in 1901, and remodeled in 1916 (according to the King County Property Record Card).

The clapboard siding that once covered much of the building has been replaced in some area with vertical board siding (or perhaps, T1-11, a plywood product) at portions of the lower story, or covered with cement/asbestos siding. The porch has been modified by removal and/or replacement of much of the spindlework that once characterized it.The entry stairs have been reoriented to enter the porch from the south rather than the west as was originally the case
