Appearance
This is a one-and-a-half story, clapboard and shingle clad, wood frame single-family residence on a concrete foundation, over a partial (40%) basement.

The essentially rectangular plan is capped by a gable roof with shed roof dormers, moderate overhangs, enclosed soffits. The roof of the partially recessed porch has a much shallower pitch than the main roof and is supported by half height columns oin shingle clad pedestals

The windows and doors are characterized by patterns and details customarily associated with Queen Anne design.

This house was built in 1904 according to the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report.

There appears to be a small addition at the back end of the structure. A few of the windows appear to be refurbished or replaced. The soffits appear to have been rebuilt. A small vent has been added in the front gable. A bright stove pipe chimney has been added to the structure.
