Summary for 528 30TH AVE / Parcel ID 5366200650 / Inv # 0

Historic Name: Common Name:
Style: Queen Anne Neighborhood: Leschi
Built By: Year Built: 1905
This is an example of Queen Anne architecture with overhanging side gables and some porch details that give the structure a slight Shingle style flavor. The structure’s design integrity has been compromised by extensive window replacement and alterations at the front porch and at the basement level.

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.

The porch steps have been rebuilt. The basement has been remodeled. About 3/4 of the windows have been replaced with vinyl units; ganged double-hung windows have replaced wide cottage type windows at several locations and the small circular windows either side of central window opening at the front-facing dormer have been replaced with small double-hung units. The siding below first floor level appears to be new.
