Appearance
This house was built in 1905 according to both the King County Property Record Card and the King County GIS Center Property Report.

The entry door and the original windows are of a type generally associated with Queen Anne work. The exposed rafter tails are a typical feature of the Craftsman style.

According to the current owner, the addition at the back end of the house was added about fifty years ago and the garage was added about ten years ago. The attic may have been remodeled earlier in the life of the structure. Most of the original windows have been replaced with vinyl units. The entry steps appear to have been replaced and stair railings have been added. One of the chimneys has been altered.
