This is a one-and-a-half story, clapboard, shingle and drop siding clad, wood frame single-family residence on a concrete foundation, over a full basement. The rectangular plan is capped by a side gable roof with moderate  overhangs, open soffits, and exposed rafter tails. The latter detail is a signature feature of the Craftsman style, though the original upper floor balustrade and the Tuscan columns and porch railing are more typical of Queen Anne -- Free Classic work. The symmetry of the front elevation is suggestive of nation folk house precedents. The windows and doors are characterized by patterns and details customarily associated with early Craftsman style architecture. The flare of the roof at the front porch is also often associated with early twentieth century Arts & Crafts work.

This house was built in 1906 according to the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report

In 1937, a substantial stairway entered the front porch on the main axis of the front elevation. This element has been entirely removed and the opening onto the porch has been closed off by an extension of the original porch railing. The porch is now accessed by a simpler stair at its southern end. The balustrade that once stretched across the face of the large front facing dormer has been removed.
