Historic Name: Common Name:
Style: American Foursquare - Craftsman Neighborhood: Madrona
Built By: Year Built: 1906
This is a an example of a single story American foursquare design with some limited late Queen Anne detailing and early Craftsman style features. The structure’s design integrity has been compromised by alterations to the front porch and the addition of a large dormer.

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.

This is a one-and-a-half story, clapboard and shingle clad, wood frame single-family residence on a concrete foundation, over a half basement. The porch appears to be built on a concrete block foundation.

The rectangular plan is capped by a hip roof with extensive overhangs, open soffits, and exposed rafter tails

The windows and doors are characterized by patterns and details customarily associated with late Queen Anne and early twentieth century housing styles. The banding of the windows in the front dormer is typical of early twentieth century architecture, particularly the Prairie and Craftsman styles. The combination of wide overhangs and exposed rafter tails identify this structure as an early example of the Craftsman style, though the window bay extending into the porch is a residual element of Queen Anne work.

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

The southwest corner of the house has been altered by enclosure of the south end of the formerly full width front porch. A large gabled dormer has been added on the north slope of the main roof at some point since 1937. A roof window has been added to this dormer and the dormer windows are obviously not original to the house. The shingle siding at the added dormer matches the siding at the existing dormer, and the enclosed portion of the porch has been clad to match the siding elsewhere at the entry level. The original entry porch stairs have been removed and replaced. The brick chimney has been altered and a new stove pipe chimney has been installed.
